Flower Garden at In The Pink

 

Hi Peeps

Today I'm here with my card for the new Flower Garden Challenge over at In The Pink..    and we're getting all summery at The Pink Palace... so our challenge requires the use of flowers..  

http://inthepinkchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

Now I know you'll all fall off your chairs seeing I've actually USED FLOWERS on my card (not even die cut ones)... but I do have a box of them in my stash... so I thought I'd dig them out and dust them off! LOL!  I'm not known for my use of  floral embellies...  it's a struggle to know just where to put them!  Think I got it right though....

Card Recipe:
Image - Wee Stamps Ruby
Papers - Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour
Colouring - Copics
Dies: Go Kreate Frilly #6, Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Seam Binding Lace and glitter from stash

I'm trying to improve my hair colouring at the moment..  however, it's a struggle..  I'm not the most patient of people!  Someone once bought me a fridge magnet that said 'Lord grant me patience, but grant it me NOW!'  That's me!  So I want my hair colouring to be perfect... NOW!  I think I may enrol for the class with Alyce over at Kit and Clowder.

We're off out for a picnic today (not decided quite where yet..)...  and to pick up a little something sparkly that's been on order from a jewellers for me... so I'm excited!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting

  14. Oh this is so pretty! I think your colouring looks gorgeous and I love the flowers... I'm the same - there's a massive tub of flowers in my craft room, but I hardly ever use them... they either don't match perfectly enough, or I can't decide where to put them! Hugs, Lisa x
