Flowery Fiftieth Fan

Commissioned 5oth card.

An attempt at doing a larger piece in parchment and maybe a bit too ambitious for a beginner, methinks..... it took me an age....gave me a headache.....but am pleased with the result.....just hope the recipient is too.

I used Crafty Ann's  fan digi from her new Oriental Collection as the pattern for the blades.
The BP is from Crafty Ann's funky collection 3 and digitally added the corner spray and sentiment.
I was worried about sticking the fan on to the card and making a problem with paper but parchment.......? ...a challenge but I got there in the end.

The small punched flowers with a  pearl in the centre are representing the cherry blossom along with a blossom from Wild Orchid.

Any tips on PC will be greatly appreciated......I missed a local beginners workshop by a couple of weeks but will be enrolling for the next one....just hope it is the meantime I'll just keep practicing
