You are the Best !!

Hiya friends ,
I have a card to share today. I made it for the inspiration of the current challenge at Lulupu blog which is to make Feminine cards using Border punches & Flowers. This card would be perfect for Mother's Day as well as any special occasion. My colours are soft and I have kept the background a bit on the dark side to contrast against the flowers. So, here's a look at what I made :
Another view :

I got to play with my new Simon Says Stamp and Die set on this card :D I am so in love with it and I think this must be  first time that I have used so much glitter, all at once on my card. I know many of you have admired the blooms I made on this card on my facebook page, these were made with the newly bought Tim Holtz/Sizzix Flower Garland die. I really, really like this flower die, as it gives you an option of three different flowers and leaves. Totally worth the money I spent on it. You all will be seeing much more variety of flowers I make using this die :D

Supplies used :
Base cardstock -Kraft.
DCWV Pattern papers.
Embossing folder -Cuttlebug/Provocraft Textile folder.
Punch -Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch.
Dies : Spellbinders Fluer De Lis Square die, Spellbinder's Classic Squares die, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Flower Garland die, Simon Says 'You' Stamp and Die Set, MFT Die-namics Scrolled Flourishes, MFT Die-namics Fancy Flourish die.
Inks : Distress Inks -Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw. Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, ColorBox Frost White Pigment ink, Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.
White Pollens, Pie Lane Chevron Stickers, Itsy Bitsy Glitter Sheet.

Challenges entered :
Crafter's Corner -Something Special.
Dies R Us -Anything Goes. ( Made it to Top 3 )
Frosted Designs - I have used Flowers, Green and Yellow.
SSS -Anything Goes.
SS Work out Wednesday- Use Pattern Papers ( I have used pattern papers to punch out the border lace).

Hope you like my card. Please leave em your comments/suggestions. I would love to hear from you :D
Have a nice day everyone!
