Flowery Fun

Hello again! I am back with another challenge!
I haven't posted anything for my beloved Dream Valley Challenges in a month!!! Shock Horror! But I am back now and we have an AWESOME Challenge for you this week, and its faaaaaaaaaabulously simple too!


Yup show us all your blooms! This is a HOT theme at the moment! So they can be handmade embellishments, on your papers, in your images! Any how Any Way!

This week we are sponsored by One Stop Card Craft! You could win a £10 gift voucher to their store! Woo Hooo!

This one was a great challenge for me! I have sooooooooooo many flowery things that I spent a good day deciding what to do hahaha! I settled on using one of my loved Wax Fruit Company stamps. If you've not seen Arielles stuff you should! Its amazing!!

So here is what I created using the beautiful Study of Tulips

I love this soooo much! Tulips are my absolute favourite flower so I snapped this one up a while ago but just never got around to using it! 
Its so delicate! Such a sweet stamp!
Here is a close up of those beautiful tulips, and a couple of my errors, try and ignore them hehhee ;)

Ooooo I do love it so much! Arielle you are a very clever lady! hehehe
I based this creation on a Sketch at Sketch and Stash this week their challenge is to choose ANY of their sketches over the back catalogue!

So theres my inspiration for you! Hope it inspires you to join our challenge!
You must head over to our challenge blog and check out my fabulous teamies creations! Such a talented bunch. Dont forget our challenges run for 2 weeks from today, so you have plenty of time to enter :)
