Scrapbook City Bling it up Competition

So, this is my second post, but my first entry into an online competition.

Did I mention previously how difficult it is to come up with a blog name??

Anyway, without further adieu, here goes...

I haven't put any sentiments on the card as I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for.  I had to use my crappy camera phone so hopefully they come out good enough (they don't really show how nice it is in real life though :( ).  The bazill I used is a gorgeous dark olive green (yes, the photos are that bad).  I have a feeling my Nan will love this so it may become a "just because" card.

I love vintage style and as you can tell, I'm a bit of a minimalist lol.  Actually, the truth is I haven't worked out how to place a gorgeous cluster of flowers onto something and make it look like it wasn't just plonked on!

 Trying to show how the card opens up (the flap slips under the little flower to hold the flap closed)

Thanks for popping in!
