Colour Create challenge #16 & ILWS swap

This little flower pot has had me up until all hours for the past few nights!!!! I have made 10 of these little cuties for a card swap over on ILWS, where the theme is May Flowers everywhere and I have left it until the last minute...............Far too much decoupage involved for a rush job!!! Still got a little bit more assembly to do.....LOL. I got the idea for the little flowerpot from Stephanie Luman's blog, check it out here

The colours I choose for the card were from this weeks colour create challenge which is Sky blue, tan & ecru (I know I have used more of a brown colour but I saw some of the DT had used slightly darker brown's).

I left the card blank for any message.

Everything used to make this card was Stampin up and is available from me POSTAGE FREE, yes POSTAGE FREE for orders £20 & over (going to same address) so if you are lusting after some SU goodies, please feel free to contact me (addy on side bar).....offer ends June 3oth.

Goodies used:
  • Stamps: Best Yet & Playful Petals
  • DP: Chocolate chip DSP
  • Cardstock: Close to cocoa, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla, Whisper white
  • Ribbon: Very vanilla 1/4" grosgrain
  • Accessories: Soft subtle brads, linen thread, the flowers have been decorated with dazzling diamonds glitter but the camera does not pick it up that well.
  • Tools: fiskars cutter/scoring tool, small & large tag punch

Hope you like my little pot, please feel free to leave me a message as I love reading them.
