Flowers at For Fun!

This week at FOR FUN we want to see.....FLOWERS! Warm, sunny cards, with lots of love on them! Maybe a card for your Mum (I know it's Mother's Day soon in the states....)

We have the very wonderful PAPER SHELTER as our sponsor this week, and when you go over and take a look around you will be hooked, GUARANTEED!

The DT all used images from The Paper Shelter this week, and despite having several on offer, most of us opted for the same image! Lol! Here's my offering:

When you buy an image from TPS you are sent both a coloured version, and a line-drawing of the image. For a change I used the coloured image, and layered it up using foam pads. My gingham papers were a freebie from the The Creative Cottage (not sure if they're still available...?) and I followed a sketch by Truly Scrumptious, but the challenge ended today so I can't enter, but no worries as it's a wonderful sketch that I'm sure I'll re-visit.

My sentiment was also a freebie, and I thought it suited the card perfectly! I added a grosgrain ribbon, layered up some paper flowers and popped a card candy dot in the centre. Some flower gems, and some tiny flower-beads to complete my card.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Don't forget to go over to the FOR FUN challenge blog and check out the fab creations by our DT.....and of course leave a comment to let us know you were there!
Thanks for popping by!
