Little extra

............time over at the DCM blog yesterday but I have only just managed to get it done. I did, however, cut the flowers yesterday after seeing them on another cardmakers blog, Creative Makes
They are actually embossed using the blue Easy Score board and hand cut. Anyway, the remit was
Our midweek Little Extra is titled ‘The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring’ and we would like you to create a card with flowers.Simple? Aww but hold on…….there’s a little twist because we don’t want to make it too easy for you. We want your cards to have flowers on but we don’t want to see any Prima’s or shop brought blooms. The idea of this dare is for you create your flowers yourself, so let’s see what you can come up with.


Flowers are cut from pink DCWV textured card and edged with Stickles. The diamante centres are by Doodlebug. The flower stalk is stamped with one of Rhonna Farrer's swirl stamps in lime green and the whole image is mounted onto silver mirror card and then onto paper printed from Pink Petticoat. I picked up on the template from Jo's blog It was a challenge from the Tilda challenge blog. I don't own any Tilda's but I liked the template

My second card is a commission for a friend of MIL so tomorrow it will be winging it's way to Somerset. The lady's grandson is coming home from Iraq next month and she hasn't been able to get a "welcome home" card anywhere so here's where I come in!!!

Not a mind blowing card by any means but I think she will like it..............well, I hope she will :)

Uniform and letters cut from card downloaded from t'internet :)

I shall now get back to the paperwork *yawn* and still need to cut some hearts and initials for a stationery order.

Thanks for looking, back soon.
