Joy sitting among flowers

Hello my friends ;)
Today I had to stay home from work because my 8 year daughter is sick. That means that I've had some time to finish a card I've been working on, in between "nursing" at home ;)
I'll try to make this post as short as possible, because there's many pics...
The card is made for the following challenges:

* Flutter By Wednesday's - Sketch by Carly
* RRR Challenge - Heart theme + a ribbon
* Kort og Godt - White and Blue
* Wild Orchid Challenge - Let's get sentimental
* Sukkersøtt - White/creme and blue
* Pollycraft Challenge - Sweet pastel colours (I would love to join this challenge with one of their fabulous images, but I'm not quite sure if the clock would allow me... And since they're having the full Sonny Honeycloud digi set as this weeks prize, I just HAD to enter even though it's not a fab Pollycraft image...*S* )

My finished card. I'm not quite comfortable with the flowers, I would love to join a class to learn some techniques... Well, I could never be a flower decorator, that's quite sure... Ha ha ;)

Adorable little Joy


Flowers - and some acrylic pearl hearts ;)

Some more flowers

I hope your day becomes just as beautiful as you ;)

    For et utrolig nydelig kort du har laget; dette motivet var bare så flott; det ønsker jeg meg også :-D Og jeg syntes blomsterpynten din er fin jeg; selv om du ikke er fornøyd selv; lekkert!
    Alt for lenge siden jeg har vært innom deg, men nå er jeg her iallefall. Hører vi er i sammen båt og, datteren min på 7 er også syk, på 6 dagen :-(
