My Mum's Totally Gorjuss Less is More Papertake Weekly Stampin for the Weekend Crafts...and Me

I've been sick!  First I got some sort of waterworks infection and as if that wasn't enough, I caught an upper respiratory bug on top.  So I'm sorry I haven't been around for visiting.  Fortunately I had scheduled my card for last Saturday's Sketch Saturday  but I didn't even manage to do my commenting for Sketch Saturday last week.  A raft of antibiotics have made me feel better although not 100% and I hope to catch up with my blog buddies out there over the coming days.
I made two of this type of card last year.  This is the third.  I have used a different embossing folder for each of them, different colours and different sentiments but they are all easy peasy lemon squeezy and quick to make.  I used my Nestie blossoms dies to cut the flower layers, inked them, sprayed them with water and scrunched and unscrunched them before building my flower and adding a pearl brad.  The layers are cut with a square Nestie and the base card is hand embossed with a square also.  This is a wedding card where the bride had chosen coral, silver and white for her colours.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up. The photography leaves something to be desired.  Sorry!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Stampin for the Weekend #18 "Feeling Floral"
Papertake Weekly - "Anything Goes" with an option to "Celebrate" (it's their birthday!)
Crafts and Me #104 "My sentiments Exactly"
My Mum's Craft Shop #78 "Love is all Around"
Less is More #88 "Silver"
Totally Gorjuss #152 "Anything Goes"
