Show Us Your Flowers!

We are now onto challenge #2 at Hooked On Craft Challenges! I can't believe all the fabulous enteries for the first challenge. Thank you so much to all who entered, all the DT were absolutely blown away with how good all of the entries were; you guys are so talented! It really was a pleasure to go and check out all of your blogs.
Challenge #2 is "SHOW US YOUR FLOWERS". How great is this challenge? I adore flowers so this was such a fun theme for me! I have made a flower pot card. This card is quite easy to make and the centre part pulls out and has room for a sentiment. I found a tutorial for this card at Inspirational Tips, Techniques and Tutorials. My stamp, flowers, leaves and lace are all from Hooked On Craft.

So break out all your flowers and decorate your papercrafts with them and join us at Hooked On Craft Challenges! Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

- CES Challenges; Challenge #42 Anything but square
- Simply Create; Challenge #46 Fly with us
- Ruby's Rainbow Challneges; Challenge #6 Flowers

Sweet Purple Blossom!

Here is a card I have made using a very gorgeous digi stamp called "Sweet Blossom" from Wee Stamps. I just adore all the stamps from Sylvia Zet and this one has to be one of my favourties! I think I own nearly all of them now, so please Sylvia; we want more of your gorgeous stamps! I coloured my stamp with copics and added some bling to her flowers (I love bling nearly as much as I love glimmer mist!). My flowers have all had a good dose of glimmer mist in 'fully purple', 'pop rocks' and 'spring rain' so they are nice and shimmery.

Please let me know what you think, I love everyone's comments!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

- Sweet Sketch Wednesday; Sketch #106 (my favourtie sketch challenge blog! Thanks ladies!)
- Simon Says Stamp Challenge; Lets play bingo. I have used 'shape, lace flowers'.
- Craft Your Days Away; Monochrome. I have used all purple tones.
- Southern Girls Challenge; Challenge #21 Anything Goes
- The Emerald Faerie Garden Challenges; Challenge #3 Petals
- Whoopsi Daisy Challenge; Make it free and easy
- Cute Card Thursday; Challenge #169 Birthstones. 'Amethyst'

All my flowers, lace, bow and trinket pin are also from Hooked On Craft.
