The Flower Challenge is one of my favourite's to have a go at. It's their 5th Birthday too!
I had added a die cut shape to my card and made a Christmas card.
I gone for a bit of a non-traditional colour with my pink background. I took the Catherine Pooler Trellis die cut and cut it a few times. I chopped two of them to remove the trellis and add just the frame behind the first die cut to give it a bit of dimension. The little poinsettia are made using the smallest two dies from a Spellbinders die set. I cut some in red and some in green to make the leaves. I also cut two little swirls by Cheery Lynn Designs. Addeda yellow pearl to the centre of the flowers. I die cut the sentiment with a Britannia Dies Christmas die and laid it diagonally across the trellis. Was very happy how it turned out.
We are certainly having Spring weather here... Yesterday was lovely and warm and hubby even went for his first swim of the new season... way too cold for me to consider, but he said it was "brisk" - then today it's cool and overcast with wind and rain. Can't wait for the consistent warm of summer. At least with the not so nice weather I've been enjoying spending some time in my craft space. A card or two done!
Take care - and enjoy your weekend.
