Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 43

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 43: anything goes - please look and see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries.

For my card I used Lacy Sunshine's winter abbey (kindly supplied by the sponsor), coloured with spectrum noir and die cut using Xcut rectangle parenthesis, cutting some mirror card with one of the larger dies. The background paper is a digital one printed and mounted on to a black card blank - I found this here (a wonderful site with lots of lovely papers to download - I've bookmarked it).

The flowers were from Hobbycraft.
