Wake up and smell the flowers

It's pouring down.  
The lawn is littered with leaves and branches and
the thermometer, on the back door, is reading 4C.
Are we really half-way through May ?
I hope you're keeping warm :-)
It's no secret that I am 'florally challenged', 
so I was excited to discover a new product from LOTV - Wild Flowers Art Pads

I flicked through the pad a hundred times, wondering what to do and finally found inspiration, 
after a visit to Katina's blog. 
I love how she used the art pad to make simple, but totally gorgeous cards.

All I added to the images was a liberal sprinkling of glamour dust, which is so difficult to photograph,
but you can just make it out below. IRL it's very sparkly!

Wow! Gorgeous image for sure! You have done a marvelous job photographing the glitter - glitter is so fickle - the lighting has to be "just so" in order for it to dance on the page. Lovely, feminine, elegant card! hugs, de
