Amber's Crafts and Stuff #3 April Flowers.

Our challenge at Amber's Crafts and Stuff this week is to use flowers, probably you'd have guessed that, well, flowers or maybe girly or pink lol. Pink is my favourite colour and I do think I've been pretty restrained using it in my challenges...I really let myself go here lol. The decoupage image is Dufex, on a background of mulberry paper that I've given a scattering of pink pearls. A pink chiffon bow with a pearl too. 

The double layered butterfly is another from the set my aunt bought for me. You can see a little of the ric-rak, over ribbon and a satin border. ... and a flower pearl. I have more satin border, with paper lace over it on the card edge. 

 My tags are stamped with Especially for You; With bunches of Love, in a pink pearl ink, embellished with lots of ribbons and some flower pearls.

 I cut my flower from some bits of the mulberry papers - about 6 layers I think - using the tiny wonky square by nestie. A few of my hand made fancy pins, and a pearl glued to a petal to finish it off. Hope you can see the paper  lace flower edging. 
Hope you like it and it's inspired you to get out your flowers and join us in the challenge this week. You'll find other inspiration from my team mates on the blog here

lovely card and thank you for joining us on crafty cardmakers but sadly the card wont be able to count in to our sponsored draw as our rules state that we only accept entries that have been entered in 10 challenges or less (including ourselves) but you can enter as many times as you like.
