Very best wishes…

Hi everyone.
Before I list the items for todays card for creative Expressions, Im just doing a little research out of interest, do you prefer my cards with paper flowers (from wild orchid craft etc) or not? I think my cards look a little bland without them (I cant use them on my Creative Expressions posts) Tell me what you think? I personally love them and thats what makes my cards stand out, along with the dies of course…
So items used…
Sue Wilson Noble double pierced squares
Sue Wilson Californian collection-Hollywood
Sue Wilson pierced flags
Sue Wilson perfect peony complete petals
Sue Wilson eyelet striplet rings
Colour cloud frosty jade
