Hello and welcome to you today.
March is here and spring is in the air and with that it brings a Brand New Challenge over at the
A massive THANK YOU to everyone who entered the February challenge.

Here is a little inspiration from me 

Items Used:
7 x 7 Card Blank -White Card & Black Card - Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad - Lemon sorbet glitter - Pinflair Glue Gel - Quickie glue pen -Ribbon & clear gems from my crafty stash.
How to:
First take a 7 x 7 card blank and then make some matt & layers using the black & white card. 
Stamp the large rose stamp 3 times and cut out different parts from each one of the layers and then using glue gel to 3d them apart from the top rose which you need to colour with your glue pen and sprinkle with the lemon glitter before completing your decoupage layers, then matt onto black card and put to one side.
Now take your biggest white layer and make your background paper using the smaller rose and swirl stamps in the set by stamping randomly all over, now matt onto black, before attaching this layer to your card blank wrap your ribbon around. 
Now place your decoupage matt and add your bow and to finish off stamp a little rose and then cut it out and add glitter then place in the center of the ribbon and finish by adding gems.
