Flower Trio Just For You - Craft For Life Campaign Card

It's been a while since I made a card for the Craft for Life campaign so I remedied that today.  I wanted to try out a colour combo including turquoise.  It's our friend Gill's birthday this week and her fave colour is turquoise.  I always try to incorporate it into cards I make for her but I'm running out of tried and tested colour combos!  I went for a bold pairing with eggplant and some white and a touch of celery.

I embossed the white oval with the Victorian Fleur embossing folder.  I stamped off the flowers twice first and then rock and rolled.  I've shaped the flowers with a DEET and an embossing stylus.  The leaves are punched shapes.  To finish off, I added turquoise gems to the flower centres.  I must say I quite like this colour combo!
