A shabby chic card and handmade flower tutorial

Hello Friends!
This is Jaya here. Hope you all are excited about the theme for this fortnight just as we are! The design team is all geared up to inspire you all with gorgeous projects so do join us in the fun and win a beautiful stamp set offered by Lulupu!
Lulupu Challenge # 30
Feminine Cards

Qualifications Guidelines :

{General Guidelines here}
1. Create a CARD (No other project will make the cut !)
2. Use Border Punches and Flowers - The flowers must be Stamped OR Handmade OR Readymade ones. though we love handmade more!

3. Use only Feminine colours for your card

4. Deadline to submit is 15th May, 2014 until 11:55 PM IST.

So here is my inspiration for the challenge.
For this card I have used the Fiskars sunburst border punch on the edge of the card. I think this punch gives the card a beautiful delicate look ..don't you?
The swirl is made of Rangers liquid pearls- Onyx Pearl (black).
The pink flowers are made using the mod podge mold and mod melts. I have acrylic painted them. the frame is a Prima resin treasure.
I did not have any mothers day stamp so I did some selective stamping :P. I made use of the Technique Tuesday stamp- Favourite Memories and stamped my sentiment!! Isn't that cool?
Here I have a Step by Step Pictorial Tutorial for the handmade fabric flower


Step 13: Finally when all the petals are done with, place the brad in the centre with hot glue and your flower is ready for embellishing your project! 
Hope you liked my card and were inspired to enter our  Lulupu Challenge#30- Feminine cards!
