Flower Frenzy - CACB #53


this fortnight is 
Floral Frenzy

For anyone who love flowers this is a super challenge and right up my street :-)

For the main BP I have used the pale brown  from the polished stone collection - I LOVE this colour :-)
The flowers are the short petal digi and are made from funky collection 1- and sooo easy to make. My way is to print the digi on to the back of your chosen paper, cut out, go around the edges with an ink pad, shape by curling the petals then layer together and put something pretty in the centre.
The frame is from Ann's metallic collection. I cut out the centre and layered it with silicone over the computer generated sentiment . All these can be found at Ann's digi shop here.

I've used three layers for the flowers and finished off by filling the centres with a liberal helping of cosmic shimmer glitter jewels - just a posh name for chunky glitter, lol.

I made a double bow with this pretty ribbon I found hiding at the bottom of the ribbon drawer. I needed a flourish so glamour dusted this one using the fab TH die. Distressed edges with vintage photo inkpad
Lace from my stash and a bit of bling and voila - a card for DD's friend's birthday tomorrow.

It will be great if you can join in and treat us to a Flower Frenzy because I'm looking forward to seeing your flowery creations.
