Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #26

"My Fair Lady"..... this card takes its inspiration from the flowers Eliza sells before her transformation, and the unforgettable Ascot Opening Day. Thanks to a day spent with my good friends Ali and Liz, I was able to borrow a background stamp for the stripes (Ali's SU Dad's Day set), then I ran it through my cuttlebug to give it some extra lift and added a black background too. The flowers are stamped on white and black using the biggest of the Eastern Blooms, and a variety of embossing.... glossy black, pearl (which came out looking very silver) and iridescent. Two are flat on the card and three are lifted up. The satin ribbon is from the deep dark recesses of my busy room. Not too sure about the sentiment ("May all your dreams come true")being on the inside, but its embossed too. Think this one might find its way to Liz's place for her next birthday.
