Because Omar means the world to me

I decided that I would give him a map of the world, a big one, one that is a 1,50 metre wide, just below my height (yes, I am THAT short!). To go with it I made this card. Making cards for Omar is relatively easy, easy because I know what he likes very well, relatively because he has very high standars when it comes to handmade cards.
So, the easy part: green (in real life is way more greener than in the photo, no photoshop in this computer) and flowers (yes, he loves flowers!). I wanted to incorporate a map so i used an old HerArts stamp for the background, stamped with Versamark and chalked with my lovely Pebbles Ink Pearlescent Chalks. The Big flower is a bazzill blossom, button by I-forgot-who, old ribbon, tag punch by Woodware, 7 Gypsies rub on and Quickutz die (metro alphabet).
Let me say that I never pre plan my cards, well there is no much point on me doing that, because I always change my mind.You see, I just have an idea of the stash I would like to use and then look in my studio for matching colours, themes and so on. When I have a choice of stuff on the table I try and see how the things look together. That is the way it works for me, which may or not work for you too.

Wow stunning card! I love the colour and the design!

I've just bought your book btw. I picked it up in a bookshop and couldn't put it down (I don't normally get much inspiration from card making books (more mags) but your book is bang up to date and gorgeous!).
