Crafty Calendar Challenge 6...Flowers


Good morning everyone...finally it's Friday and the weekend is in sight...it looks like it's going to be another sunny day her today...I can see a frost on the cars so should imagine its quite fresh out!

It doesn't seem like a whole month has passed since the last Crafty Calendar Challenge but here we in March already and this month's challenge going live today. I love this months theme of FLOWERS...perfect for all the little buds that are starting to appear...all you have to do is make something with a floral design...you could use flowery papers...flowers on your card or even on your image...this months optional extra is to use PASTEL COLOURS! The design team have made some remarkably pretty cards for this challenge...so pop on over and take a peek if you get a few minutes!

Oops...I almost forgot...there is a bit of a story behind the image on my card today...one of the girls at work requested an Orangutan on her Mother's Day card...apparently she loves them and is currently adopting about 6 of them at Zoo's around the UK lol!

Orangutan Image : Google
Design Papers : Shabby Princess (Girlie Without The Pink)
Lilac Card Stock : Papermill
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Embellies : Ribbon, Pearls and Gems from Craft Stash!
Tools : Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch, X-Cut Flower Punch
Sentiment : Sentiment created on the PC
