Amaryllis

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all warm and well, here's a few hugs for those who need or want them {{{{{hugs}}}}}

I have to take Stephen to Long Eaton for his speech therapy this morning.

My card for today is very blingy compared to what I usually make. I usually like lots of white space, but I am happy with this one for a change :o)
My very good friend Pauline and her hubby Rob bought me this beautiful Amaryllis for Christmas, and it had two stems, one with two flower heads on it and this one with 4 heads, and what beauties they were too.


All card used is white linen from Papermill Direct,  white pearlised from ? and red Papermania textured.
I put the pearlised card through the Big Shot with the Couture Collection (I think) Tied Together embossing folder.
Own photograph of course, printed onto linen card.
Cheery Lynn foliage die used. 
I coloured the white pearls with Copic marker pen. 
Not really anything else I can say about it :o)

Amarylis are one of the most elegant and stately flowers (to my way of thinking :) and you have captured its beauty so well. Love your blingy card and I think it is perfect.
