Roses all the Way.

I cracked on and made this card today. 'Peter the Painter' is busy painting the hallway,stairway, landing and as it has been raining heavily again (so no gardening) I have been marooned in the craft pod with instructions to mind  the wet paint by 'The Doc'. (Well thats my story anyway!)


These paper flowers were sample reject colour choices that I made for the wedding so I found some challenges which would enable me to use them up on a card.
The base card is 300gsm watercolour card with plain pink card stock matted on top. Doily attached and a page of music from an old Hymn book which was  coloured with chalks  and then cut with a nestie adhered to the centre. Butterfly was coloured with LuminArte paint and the leaves with Pearlescent chalks. The sentiment was generated in word and again cut out using a nestie.

 I think that covers all the critique needed to enter the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons: Handmade flowers.
Crafty Ribbons: Flowers.
DO You Stack Up: Use a flower.
2 Sisters Challenges: Make it Girlie..
Totally Gorjuss: Pink & Green.
Hooked on Craft: Flowers.
Make My Monday: Any flower with music.
