created by hand: flourishes


The theme at Created by hand is flourishes, so I thought I would enter this card that I made for Nellie's birthday. All stamps and the collage image are by Inka. I have coloured the flourish leaves with a white gel pen, used a stencil for the background and added a flower that I crocheted
