Flower Power



   There are a spring birthdays in my family so quite a few cards have to be made. For this one I began by matting and layering paper printed from Crafter's Companion Flower Fairies of the garden triple CD ROM and copper mirri card onto off white card. I also printed a border from the same CD ROM and this I matted and layered onto copper mirri card and green mirri card. I then cut two green mirri card flourishes using a die from the Tonic Ulysses butterfly set and these I attached on top of the border strip. I punched six daisy shapes and coloured them using Promarkers. These I assembled into three flowers, using a card candi for each centre.
   The stamped image, from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Designs spring collection of rubber stamps is also coloured using Promarkers and was matted onto copper mirri card. I matted a sentiment onto copper mirri card and attached this to the card along with mini green mirri card flourishes which were part of one of the victorian corners from Tattered Lace.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Sweet Stampin' - flowers
   Penny Black and More - blossoms and blooms
   Lisa B. Designs - flowers
   Paper Pretties - punches
   House Mouse and Friends - flowers and flourishes

   Crafty Ribbons - flower power
   The Squirrel and the Fox - all creatures great and small
