Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Design Team Blog Hop. You may have arrived here from my lovely and talented friend Satomi Wellard from Japan.

I added the large floral image and layered up some flowers and leaves that I had fussy cut and gently curved using my bone folder. I wrapped Linen Thread around the card, tied it in a bow and added some Rhinestones coloured using the Balmy Blue Blends. Next up in toda
