AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge 2

Hello all - this is my 2nd card for the day and also the 2nd challenge from AnnaBelle Stamps blog 2nd birthday celebrations.  The challenge is to use flowers and bloom.   I used the sketch from Card Patterns and made this easel card - it is a twisted easel card I think!  I was perusing the internet and came across it and thought that looked neat.

a side view
I have used the ballerina rose set from AnnaBelle Stamps.  This is a gorgeous set and is one of my favourite.
materials - AC straw cardstock, Bazzill black cardstock; Lily Bee 'this & that' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'ballerina rose' stamps; Stazon jet black ink, Versa Color canary ink; Marvy pens - blender 0, leaf green 48, citrus yellow 69; Derivan crystalina kindy glitz; Kaiser black pearls; 6mm pale yellow ribbon; staples.
Unfortunately I have had to make a sympathy card as Neils cousin Judy her husbands mother is not long for this earth so the family is bracing itself.
On a cheerier note .... GO THE CATTERS! woo hoo GEELONG WON! on Friday night ... here is a photo of Judy, Neil and I at the MCG waiting for the game to start.
As you can see we are rugged up warm - Friday was very windy and cold and the night was even worse.  I had 6 layers on! now I don't wear silly fashionable clothes ... I wear outdoor wear clothes - I had merino, polar fleece and gortex layers and after 4 hours of just sitting there I was cold!  it would have been miserable had we lost but we didn't and so I am a happy crafter at the moment!
Thanks for looking.

Love the pic Janet, it certainly was a brave move to head out in the cold but at a Cats supporter you were well rewarded for your efforts!
Your card is beautiful, you make the flowers sing with the fabulous colour combo and layout!
