Hi Susan here...

Now for my card...
The theme of this weeks challenge is NO STAMPS, so keeping to that I have made my card using dies, handmade paper and a handmade flower.
I have used a small piece of handmade backing paper from my stash....it has a very delicate flowery pattern on it and I felt it was just right for what I wanted. I have stitched all around the edges and distressed with Tim Holtz distressing ink. The sentiment has been made on the computer and printed direct onto the backing paper.
The large swirly accent is a die from Sizzix, I used a pink card then inked the edges of the swirls with the same distressing ink as the backing paper. The pearls and ribbon are from our local market. My flower has been made using scraps of netting and two colours of organza fabric, I used a circle die to initially cut the circles then I used a naked flame to sear the edges before fastening the shapes together with a gem brad. I loved making this flower and it has such a dramatic effect on the card.
