Flower Fever!

Hi everyone

Hope you are having a nice Tuesday? I have been having a lovely one..my daughter is still off another week for her Easter hols, so we have been crafting together.

I am well into making my own flowers - definately think is a phase I am going through. I am trying various shapes to get the right 'petal' - think I have narrowed it down to two - one of them being the shapes that make up these flowers.

Have to say I rather love this card - I have had this paper for absolutely ages and never got around to using it, so as I have said on a previous post, I am no longer going to be buying any more papers until I have used up some of my unopened stash that I have had for years!

Here is today's offering:

Recipe: Laura Ashley paper, heart brads from Papermania,
pearls from Sally's Cards & Things,

DCWV Vellum Sentiment (love), ribbon from a box of chocolates, Martha Stewart 'Oak Leaf' punch

I would also like to put this card into the following challenges:

Pile it on #14 - Say it with Words - Yay, I suggested this on the PIO blog a few weeks ago (along with some other crafters) and they are doing it - YAY!!
Quixotic Challenge #20 - Spring - my flowers are very Spring!
Crafty Ann #12 - Let the sunshine in- Nice flowery, sunny card!
Allsorts #47 - Petals & Pearls - plenty of petals & pearls!
Our Creative Corner - Bows, yep done 2!
Crafty Angels #30 - Favourite Things - my fave things of the mo are my handmade flowers!!
Diecut Dreams #43 - Vintage with no colouring - well, I think this is vintage...!!
Moving Along with the Times #41 - Easel Card - done!
Crafty Cardmakers #18 - Challenge yourself - I am challenging myself to find the 'perfect' handmade flower type (and to use up all my old stash!)
Sophisticat Challenge #29 - So Distressing - my poor flowers look very distressed...and the edges of the papers!
Raise the Bar Challenge #13 - Lets Spring for it. - flowers - very Spring like!!
