Flowers, One Of My Favourite Challenges!

Its a Sunday and it's time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time. Our theme as usual is Anything Goes but this week we would love to see what you can create with Flowers. Please pop over to our blog and see the amazing makes of my teamies.

For my card I used a piece of Stamping Up paper that I've had in my stash for a few years, Its so pretty on either side. My main image is Meowme by BB Kakes and you can find it right here, ain't she cute!  I was on holiday in France last week and took as much of my craft bits and pieces as I could but when you are travelling with a fishing husband there ain't much room left! Anyway, I forgot to take anything to do with a sentiment but I'll find the right one soon.  I had these Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms flowers over from a previous card I had made for a 50th Wedding Anniversary so chose my Promakers in apricot/ginger tones.  A bit different for me. The leaves are by Memory Box and Tattered Lace and tucked right underneath is a die from a Tattered Lace magazine.

OSAAT Challenge 264 Anything Goes with Layers

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge over at the One Stitch at A Time challenge blog here.  Our theme this week is Anything Goes With Layer It Up.

Just perfect for me as I love the dies I can get many layers with.  On this card I have used Spellbinders 5 x 7 Detailed Scallops with the matching 5 x 7 Matting Basics. I've used some papers from First Edition Bird Song pad and mounted the layers on an A5 card.  The sentiment is by Stitchy Bear and is called Just Between Friends and is perfect for me. Theres quite a few sentiments in this set that will be perfect for a close friend. Leaves ar by Memory Box

Please pop over and enjoy my teamies cards, they are fabulous and you can find them here
