Creative Cottage Challenge Week 12

Happy Wednesday to you all. I hope your not as cold as I am, its freezing here this morning. My daughter is still not well today and so I have her at home, with a temperature and sore throat, fingers crossed I don't get it! My poor son and his girlfriend have the week off work this week, its such a shame the weather is not nicer for them. They had planned going to Southend today, but alas the weather has made them re-consider.

Well I will be busy this morning, I have lots of things to get done, so I shall keep this waffling brief!



The kit

with additional paper packs

Being Wednesday again (already) its time for another fabulous challenge. I love this weeks challenge titled "Blooming Charming". For inspiration from my fabulous DT sisters please go to the Creative Cottage Challenge Blog where you are sure to be inspired!

For those of you who visit my blog regularly you will know my lovely friend Anna Marie, produces her own templates, originally in card they are now available to buy on a CD format.

I have had this flower template for a while, and until now not had chance to use it. So I have been thrilled to use two of my lovely friends products for my challenge this week. Anna's template and Tracy's fabulous Daisy Chain Farm Kit Digi Download that is available here.

I have used one of the ready coloured digi images included in the Farm Kit and printed it out on an A4 white card. Then traced round the template to form this lovely flower shape.

Have used some of the fabby papers inside and added sequin flowers and pearls to highlight the mat. The outside of the card coloured with my distress inks, and the addition of some of the flower embellishments included in the kit and a flourish border.
Added some retro punch flowers and the stems are some cloud 9 stickers i've had for ages.
