SSS&S a flourish

Sorry I haven't been a very good blogger lately just have been busy with other thing now that summer has finely arrived. So much to do and of course never enough time to get it all done. Today it's raining so I thought I'd share a card I did recently and enter it in a few challenges. I purchased some of the crinoline from Linda Coughlin over at The Funkie Junkie's Etsy shop so I had to make a flower for my card.The doily is one of the CheeryLynn dies Italian lace . Deborah over at Fargotcat Shops has them in her store ,they are just beautiful.I used the Spellbinders die Foliage to make the leaves also purchased at Fargocat Shop.Other supplies used MS butterfly punch,EK success edge punch,TH flouish die,CB folders,swiss dots and a new one which came with my new CB machine (sorry there wasn't a name on it )but it's so pretty for BGs. I used the new Viva Decor to make my pearls --Fargocat shops also carries these in several colors.
For my flower I followed the tutorial by Linda over at The Funkie Junkie mine isn't quite as pretty as Linda's but I loved playing with the crinoline.

Entering this in the following challenges:
