Flower Power - Joanna Sheen



Morning :)  Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far!

We have a new challenge today over at Joanna Sheen, and our theme this time is 'Flower Power'  :) I hope we see lots of entries, as flowers are just a wonderful finishing touch to add to your projects as well as a gorgeous main focal image..

For my card I used this really pretty floral stamp called 'Flower Bouquets - In Cellophane'.  I often forget about using flower images on their own, but they are suitable for so many occasions and this was just lovely to colour, I got completely engrossed! :) lol.

I hand-stitched Anna Griffin & K&Co papers, and hand-beaded pearls onto an MS PATP.  The embossed background to the bouquet is an M-Bossabilities Sea Beauty

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

I ♥ Promarkers - Flower Power
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - Cut it out
Crafts & Me - Embossing

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and for all the lovely comments.  I am still catching up, as its near to the end of the month, and as usual my internet has been throttled! bah and tut!

Pauline said...

Wow, what an amazing card! I love tha fab layers, and your wonderful flowers. Stunning!

Paula (PEP) said...

Goodness - what didn't you use? Love the way your floral paper is echoed by the spray & the layering of the circle over the scallped layer - intriguing little details poking out just along the edge of that. Even your die-cut leaves echo the shapes of those in the garlands on the paper.
Wet, wet, wet & even more wet here so no doubt you have similar.
