The Flower Challenge #51 Use Embellishments Reminder

It’s almost Christmas!!! Very happy that I’ve got the week off between Christmas and New Year for once. I need to tidy up all my crafting stuff so I can find things easily and clear so actual space to craft in! I hope you all have a lovely Christmas planned, even if it is very different from normal years. 

If you need a break from Christmas planning, there’s still time to join in our current challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this month we want you to use embellishments

I used some of the smaller left over flowers from my last card to make this card. I also die cut the leafy frame out of two different shades of green. The die only has leaves in two corners, so I snipped those corners out of the paper green and then glued them behind the bare corners of the frame. I did consider just turning the frame over but it would have shown the reverse of the die cut edges, so this way kept the smooth edges showing. I also cut the Sue Wilson sentiment out of black card. 

I assembled the card and added some pearls to the centres of the flowers and a tiny heart gem to finish. Simples! As ever I can’t wait to see your cards, please check out my teamies amazing cards and perhaps remind yourself of our rules as we hate having to discount stunning cards because they haven’t complied with our rules. If you can include our cue card in your post we’ll be eternally grateful too! Stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas x
