Good luck

Here's my contribution to the design team section, hope you find it to your liking.

You will need
white card
plastic mask
Spellbinders Layered Poinsetta dies
S.W.A.L.K Bloomin lovely Stamp
Tim Holts distressing ink
Kreaxion posy die
pink gingham paper
pink pearls embellishments
white vellam paper

     I used a leafy mask from the 'a touch of' range on some white card and embossed though my Grand calibur machine then inked it up with some Tim Holts green distressing ink 'peeled paint'. making sure to give the corners so extra and then shade lighter towards the middle dont worry about inking inside the frame as this is going to be hidden by the stamped image. there is a huge range of distressing  inks  by Tim Holts and those and the inking tool can be found on the J and C Creations website . why dont you pop over sometime and have a look at all the wonerful items they have to help with your crafting. when the leafy card was done I matted it on to some pink gingham and then onto a base card

 The stamp is found the S.W.A.L.K collection by Crafters Companion and comes with a different saying but I thought ' If friends were flowers . I picked you...' was more appropriate to the card. I have used a combination of Spectrum noirs and Pro markers to colour in and have edged the image with some pretty lace . The flowers are made using a die from new crexions range and the leaves are made from a christmas Spellbinders set layered Poinsetta.with white vellam paper. The flowers had been made earlier in the week.I always have a few made up spare in Pink or Purple and then I just decorate with some co ordernating coloured jewels in the middle when I use them on a card. Today I went for a diamond jewel as there was plenty of pink going on already. I finished up with some pearls in the corners
