My first flower soft card

Good evening folks!

About time I got out of the sun and back onto my blog :)

Tonight I thought I'd share with you my first attempt at flower soft! I'm thrilled at how this turned out, I found it very theraputic (but hey card making alone is theraputic right crafters?!)
I made this card for a very good friend of mine at work and she likes it so much that she is keeping it on her desk to cheer her up on "bad" days at work. That's a nice compliment on it's own - that she likes to look at my card :) I wasn't too sure how this was going to turn out when I first started doing the wires to make the bouquet and thought this tiny little bits won't stick on and stay on - how wrong was I?! You can bend them and play about with them when they're dry and all the flower soft still stays on the wires. Love it! Here is a close up of the bouquet....
The papers I used are old 'hot of the press' papers that I've had for ages, I thought they complimented the colours of the bouquet rather well and just simply finished the card with mini punched and embossed butterflies stuck on with pinflair glue.
Thank you for taking the time and stopping to look at my work.
Love Louise x
