Hi there , welcome to my room . It's a glorious day here in Adelaide , and here I am enjoying your company , so all is good. Hope you are all well.
Thank heavens for digital cameras ! I have taken 25 shots of this card and this is the best  I could choose . My card today is my take on a swap I had recently from Ally.
The flower panel is a piece of Acetate embossed with Big Shot folder , Elegant Bouquet.

And the reason for the difficulty is that the acetate reflected light in any  angle I tried.

I used a white Pigment Ink Pen to colour the underside of the daisys and a green marker for stems .
The larger  white panel is also embossed and hard to see . The black card under the acetate is embossed with Dots folder.

 The card base is Glossy White with a Basic Black mat . I then adhered a smaller Marina Mist piece. I used more of this card to punch [EK] a lattice work strip, to add to bottom edge. Over this I added a Marina Mist ribbon and bow.
The sentiment from SU Tiny Tags is on Small Scallop Circle edges sponged with  Brocade Blue  ink .
Might have to have another go at this card and photography.
Still I hope you have got the idea , it really looks better in real life .
Catch you again soon cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .

lovely card! The border punch is fabulous! I think the layout is wonderful. Shame this was so difficult to photograph as I would like to have seen the embossing on the white.
