Hello and welcome...

Today is a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers
Jackie is hosting this and the theme is Floral Profusion!
We would love to see your creations covered in flowers .. lots of flowers!!
As always, anything you make is fine as long as it fits the theme
Please read the rules and take note of our '15 Challenge Limit'

This is my contribution:
as well as a commission
  • I began with a white 8" square card and added a mat of gold mirri card
  • I then embossed another piece of white card with the cascading hearts embossing folder and used a corner punch to all 4 corners
  • Using 2 of the pierced oval frames dies, I cut and embossed a frame 3 times and adhered these together, added mounting foam to the back, prior to adding the frame to the centre of my card
  • I cut all the petals for the flowers by hand, shaped them then added several shades of distress inks to each one
  • I made a 'floppy' bow with white satin ribbon and attached it within the oval then added the flowers
  • The leaves were left over from a previous card and I covered them with diamond snow
  • I also added strands of pearls to the flower arrangement and pearl hearts to one corner of the card and one pearl heart to the sentiment
  • The personal sentiment was typed then die cut and glued to the card and to complete I inserted a personal verse
