Pile on the flowers at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey ma sweet peeps!

Here i am back with our new challenge over at WhoopsiDaisy. I know i`m late and i just have to apologize for it.

I work at a grocery store and the owners are having a mahoooosive renovation of the premises. They have added about 300 square metres to the store and also are going to give the old part at huge facelift. Half of the first floor is getting tared down and the ground floor is getting everything stripped down to make room for new stuff. This weekend all the employees and some other people packed down all the groceries to be shipped to another store in the same chain. So yesterday when i was supposed to make my card i didn`t manage to use my fingers as they were so swollen and numb. And Linnie, beeing a great boss as usual, had such sympathy for me and told me to relax. My fingers are still a bit stiff, but i`ll manage, lol.

So anyways...here is my card. Hope you bear with me as there is a lot of closeups, lol.


The image i have used you can find on sheet #343 in the WhoopsiDaisy shop
I got some new papers in the mail today from Marianne Design. I fell for them immediately and i just had to use one of them for my card. (the pink and creme one)


The colours i have used are:

Skin: 
Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan, Sunkissed pink

Hair:
Walnut, Terracotta, Spice, Honeycomb

Trousers:
Midnight blue, Denim blue, Pastel blue

Top:
Plum, Maroon, Mulberry



A while back i came across these totally adorable buttons. They look really gorgeous in the right light. They are really shimmery.


I have useda mix of flowers from both Mulberry Crafts and Wild Orchid Crafts. The lace is also WOC.
