Hawthorn Blossom

Good morning! I've just noticed a few days ago that my stock of cards is very low so I decided to get cracking and stock it up again. I always seem to need lots of Get Well and Thinking of You cards so I use plenty of florals.
This one is Hawthorn Blossom from my  A Passion for Stamps  digi collection and I have cut out several images and decoupaged some petals and leaves. I have used gorgeous Reeves bronze glitter in the centre of the flowers and plain glitter around the edges of the die cut.
