Secret crafter challenge # 30 - flowers

It is not my usual card style but I needed a card quickly and not with too much "cute factor" - so yes, totally out of my comfort zone! :D

I compensated by using a lot of specialty papers (flocked, glittered) and embossing my little heart out.

And my husband didn't like this card, he thought it was "too dark". Oh well, gonna go and drown meself in the loo now. Bhah.

At least it fits quite well with Secret Crafter challenge AND Cupcake Craft Challenge for this week
Thanks for looking!
