Parchment Challenge

Our smashing MSE friend, Jenny (aka Dragonllew) is one of the first people to usually leave a lovely comment on my posts.  I follow her blog too and noticed that she had made a card with parchment as part of her role on the DT of C.R.A.F.T. Challenges 

After seeing Jenny's beautiful card I thought I'd have a go.  Well, it didn't turn out too well so I'm not showing that and then I had one of those light bulb moments and used a die called Anemone Flower Topper from Spellbinders. I used an embossing tool on the inner petal to make the flower more opaque.  It reminds me of a waterlily.
I hope they like it. It turned out to be just the sort of card a good friend likes, clean and simple.   Rotten light, sorry!

I'd like to enter this card into the following

Oh it's just gorgeous! I will have to look for that die. I think it would make a pretty Christmas poinsettia too. Thanks for playing in Squigglefly's challenge!
