Add some texture for the Southern Girls

Good morning, I'm here today with my DT card for our new challenge at Southern Girls. I was so delighted to see that we're sponsored by The East Wind this time, I love working with these beautiful images! I chose to use  Aurora Floral Kiss to make my card. I've used my copics to colour the image ,
embossed and layered some of the flowers for extra texture and dimension., and added a little braid made from embroidery thread. The papers and sentiment are by Craftwork Cards Chalkboard Collection, the die cut butterflies are Sizzix Tim Holtz.
Thanks for looking,  I know you'll be sorry if you miss out on the rest of the DT's fabulous inspiration, so just click here to enjoy!
