Paper Shelter challenge - Flowers Everywhere

The theme for this weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter is

There are great prizes up for grabs! If you are our randomly selected winner and play with a TPS image then you have a chance of winning a $30 gift certificate, any other image and you will win three digis of your choice.

now I am not into huge bouquets of flowers all over my cards, I think they look fabulous on other peoples, but I just don't seem to be able to put them together, the brief for this challenge was lots of flowers, so I hope that I have managed to add enough.

Digital Stamp - A Classy Stroll - The Paper Shelter (Dress paper pieced)
Papers - Bonnets 'n Bowties - Nitwit Collections
Large flowers made from X-cut heart punches, large, medium and small
Flower centres and daisies X-cut flower punches medium and small
Leaves - very old punch I found in my collection - no longer available
Ribbon and pearls - Meiflower

I made all the flowers using punches, the larger flowers were made from heart punches and the smaller flowers and flower centres from daisy punches.

Don't forget to pop over to The Paper Shelter blog for a full list of challenge rules and to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of my teamies.

Thanks for taking a look,
Colette xx

You've managed the flowers bit perfectly Colette - and they look so good and perfectly match the image - they really make the sleeves and feathers pop! Love the fabulous image - you've designed a perfect card around her!

So lovely to have you back in blogland...
