The power of flowers


**Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page 😦  **


At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Flower Power.We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I chose to play with this little sweetie,Flowers in my Garden,by A Day For Daisies 🙂 She’s been water coloured with AquaMarkers and I stamped the sentiment to the top right corner.I die cut the scalloped square base.When making shaped cards I always cut and overlay an extra top piece to eliminate the straight edge.That works well especially in this case as I’ve used my Grand Nestabilities to layer everything up for a concentric look.Regular Nesties have been used to cut out the image and a scalloped version to create a pretty frame for her.The papers are Dovecraft Garden Party and the ribbon and flowers are from the same collection.I’ve been umming and ahhing about these for ages…so glad I took the plunge 🙂 The charm is a magazine freebie and the gems are Trimcraft The London Line.As you can see I’ve a bit crazy with the floral theme 😀
