CCT Flowers

Hello there!  It's time for our next challenge at Cute Card Thursday, this time we want to see some flowers on your creations - stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT made and read all about the prize.

I just have the one picture for you today, the camera isn't playing ball on the close ups and this one is a bit off on the colours - ah well!  I've used another pretty picture from the Mattie's Flowers cutting sheet, the picture is actually a circle but I've cut it into an oval to fit the pretty Marianne Design lacy frame CR1204.  The background paper is a sheet that looks like floorboards from the Country Style paper pack, I've roughed up and inked the edges for a more rustic look as well as inking the edges of the picture and lace mat.  To embellish I raided the bit boxes and found the little green hearts, lavender swirls and flower sequins.  I've cut a fancy MD die cut in half to decorate the edge of the card, inking the embossed areas to tie things in.  And I found the snowflake circle die already cut out in my bit box ready to tuck in behind the picture on top of a piece of jute ribbon and length of lace.  I've die cut a few tiny flowers with the tiny flower strip die then finished off with scraps of ribbon, twine and liquid pearls.

Thanks for stopping by again.  I'm feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment with trying to look after Mum as well as the house and garden - and finding time to craft and catch up with blogging, Facebook etc.  I really appreciate the visits and can see from my stats that lots of ladies are stopping by - so thank you each and everyone.
