Always Fun Challenges - Flowers

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your weekend been? I hope you did something nice. On Sunday we went to visit my husband's parents and take them out for a meal. My husband is borrowing a hat from them that will  be part of a costume for a murder mystery evening we are going to this week. I have a lovely friend who has lent me my costume including a fur coat. If there are any photos I will share them with you.

You might have noticed that I have joined a new design team Always Fun Challenges. This is my first card for them. The challenges are weekly starting on a Monday and finishing on a Saturday. There is always a theme this time it is Flowers.

I was making a card for an event later in the year and I liked part of the design and I thought that it might work well on a card by itself. This is what I ended up with. All the papers came from my stash. 

The challenges are fun and you just have to follow the theme. 

I cut the sentiment with a Signature die set. 

The flowers were made with the Cape Daisy die set from Creative Expressions. They are the same dies I used to make the button holes for the wedding last year. This was the first time I have used the dies since the wedding. I used left over papers from the wedding too. I used the Faux Quillled Leaves dies from Creative Expression to make the leaves. The ovals were cut with some Tattered Lace dies. 

I do like to have a few cards like this put by you never know when you might need one. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting

Hi Jackie
What a pretty card, I love the flowers, you've probably enjoyed using them again now as enough time has passed since the frantic cutting out for wedding flowers. I'm looking forward to hearing about the murder mystery evening, it sounds fun.
Love Diane xxx

Very pretty I love the layout I am not very good at mixing colours and backgrounds
Enjoy your Murder Mystery They’re great fun and have done quite a few
I remember one in particular where I borrowed a jacket from my kid’s headmistress We were at a function and I mentioned I needed a jacket just like the one she was wearing She promptly took it off and gave it to me And as I was going as a Geisha girl I wore white face paint I got a few astonished stares when we pulled into a garage in the dark to buy petrol on the way!
