Ruby's Rainbow DT card

I've got a couple of sorrys before I start - sorry to my DT buddies on Ruby's Rainbow, I am a bit late with this post and, sorry for the dull picture.  I can't remember how many days it has been since I saw the sun - it will be nice to take a picture in decent sunlight!  At least we've got away without snow - so far!

Ruby's Rainbow challenge for the next 2 weeks is "Flowers with Sparkle" so let's see what you can create for this challenge! 

I've used paper from the Nursery stack from DCWV - the floral one is glittered.  The stamped image is from Stampavie and I've coloured it with pro markers.  I've added my sparkle to the flowers with Cosmic Shimmer glitter.  I wanted to make this card a nice and simple one so I've just added a border of pearls and some faux stitching.  Sometimes I think  that my flowery embellished cards are "too much" for some people and a clean and simple one does the job much better.

You can see my "flowers with sparkle" a bit better on this picture.  I would hate to count up how many stamps I have of teddy bears with flowers, but I just had to have this one too!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Divas by Design - Anything goes
Inky Impressions - Pearls or bling
Die cutting divas - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out Ruby's Rainbow Challenge blog,
