The Flower Challenge #72 Add Sparkle

Hi there friends, how are you all today? no idea how I am atm. lol as I am writing this in June ahead of time....well you know how I love to get ahead!... and it's also the hottest day of the year so far and 32c. Soo hot for wondering what the rest of the Summer has in store now...will update later:)

August update... it was boiling in August!!! 54C in our back sunlounge at one point....will add a pic at the bottom in case you don't believe me ;)

Anyway I am here with another challenge for you from The Flower Challenge and our theme for September is.... an easy one.... 'Add Sparkle' how easy is that !

Our talented Guest Designer this month is Donna Mikasa our winner for May, see her fabulous card on our blog as well as my teamies amazing creations of course too ;)

We hope you will all want to join in and share your fabulous floral creations...with the added sparkle of course !

I used a green alcohol inked piece of card I made a while ago and had in my stash....they come in so handy sometimes don't they. Not used this edge die before and think I just love it now. I added a very sparkly silver rose and a few sequins, hope you like it ;)

So come and take a quick peek at my card below and enjoy your week whatever you have planned.

Quick  health update! I am having quite a few health problems this year and now my dear OH is having some too so lots of visits to the hospital etc etc. As you can understand things are getting a bit hectic with me lately. 

So sorry if I haven't been leaving anyone comments lately too but this is why. Also we are thinking of moving house at some point also so that will keep me busy too. I am stepping back a bit with all I do for The Flower Challenge for now also, although I will still be making cards and on the team. Thanks for understanding ;) Vx

Dear friend: I'm so very sorry you and your husband are having so many health issues at this time, I pray for you to soon start feeling better, take care of yourself, The Flower Challenge should not be one more worry for you, it's important for you and your family to come first.
Your card is beautiful, simple and elegant, the alcohol ink background is gorgeous.
Please take care of yourself, ok?

Alcohol ink backgrounds can make any card special IMO, Viv, and this one is gorgeous. It's a great resting place for the sparkly silver rose.
