Dandelion Heads or is it Agapanthus???????



The Play Date Cafe as usual has come up with a gorgeous colour scheme this week and I'm really late posting this - the card has been made for 4 days and hopefully I'm not too late for the challenge!!!

The colours were a lovely muted mix of cream, mushroom, grey and brown so I used the last of my Penny Black stickers which included all of these colours (fortunately for me!) and picked out the mushroom and brown colour for the backing papers.
I was undecided if the flowers were dandelion seed heads or agapanthus but whatever they were I thought they'd benefit from some liquid pearls! A bronze metal flower with a pearl centre was mounted onto a cream fabric flower and I finished off with a mushroom colour organza bow.
