Rainbow Ladys Challenge

First up today is a card for Rainbow Lady's challenge.. another one I have missed out on for so long now and this week, Cynthia has challenged us to use a frame somewhere on our card.
Seeing as I had all my Sakura flowers ready I decided to create something using them.
Here is a close up of one of the glaze flowers... the main card pic is a bit dull due to the weather here today & when using the flash there was too much reflection... thought you would let me off for just one flower though.

Here I layered a piece of red card onto the centre of my base card & then took a Craftwork Cards frame & highlighted the design with chalks and edged it using a Sakura Pen Touch Calligraphy Pen and attached to the card using 3d foam pads.
Next up I attached a chalked sentiment to the corner of my frame & then my Sakura coloured vellum flowers using silicone. To finish off I edged the main card again with my Pen Touch and added a few red gems.

Gems are from my stash
Right, I'm off again to see what I can be getting on with today & will hopefully make it back later with another little thing or two...
Happy crafting
