About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

CCM&M Challenge 147 - Flower Embellishments

Afternoon! It's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More - and this fortnight the lovely Julie would like to see your flower embellishments! Flower images alone will not count - it needs to be 3D embellishments!!

So, I decided to raid my stash for this card. I made a tri-fold base from double sided Fresh White Centura Pearl, 
The pink paper is from Kanban - Love and Marriage pad, the pink from Kanban - Birth and Celebration pad, ad the Flower from Kanban - Well Wishes and Celebrations. 
I have a feeling the coloured flowers may also be Kanban, but I popped them out so long ago it's hard to remember. In addition, I cut more flowers from Fresh White Centura Pearl, and some cream card using Crafter's Companion Essentials Flowers for all Occasions 1 and 3 die sets. The leaves are Crafter's Companion Die'sire Quilling Leaves.
Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Cardmakers and More blog to check out the rest of the inspiration.

Back soon,
