"Flowers"

"Flowers"
is the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight.
The stamping must be the focal point of your creation...and follow the theme and you are win with a chance of winning!

It is shocking weather in my part of the world at the moment,
surging seas, wild winds, hail and rain...even a little snow a couple of hours up the road.  
That's as close as it gets to us as we live by the sea.  
But like I always say, if I have to freeze my ... off, then I hope it is snowing somewhere!

So it was great to sit down and think of Spring flowers.


This is another one layer card with some tiny punched butterflies added on.
I have used the ripping technique (a solid favourite with me)
in pink (yes, I am still working on the 'pink' in me).
When I look at this card I think it is the total opposite
 to what is happening outside.

The flower stamps are from Darkroom Door
 and the butterfly is from Stampers Anonymous.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

p.s.  I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world!


Enjoy!


I would love to enter this in the following challenges ~

A great design Dot, love the contrasting colours and a rip here and there always works for me too. Hope your weather improves but I guess you are in the middle of winter now. We've had some lovely warm days for a change, although it did rain yesterday xx

Great use of the ripped technique - the flowers look wonderful against it.
