Sleepy Bee Flower Shaped card

I joined a swap again this month and the challenge was to make and send a card that is shaped (not the norm) so it could be a boot, teapot, butterfly etc. I had the idea to dust off my robo again and make a flower shaped card and I wanted it to be mostly white and very fresh looking, so I hope this fits the bill.

The digi image is from the Digi Stamp Boutique's April Freebie which I have only got around to using now, and I am sure it will be available in the shop to buy.
UPDATE - this is still available as a freebie to download here.

I created the flower shape with the robo, and then flipped a copy of it before welding them together so that the back is the same as the front and then cut circles with nestabilities and stuck the circle with the image on with foam pads so it had some depth.

The image was coloured with twinkling H2O's as was the background and I managed this by not using too much water and heatsetting the image with a heat gun after printing it.
all finished off with stickles glitter glue and some black and white checked ribbon
