PTD - Challenge #34 - Flowers

Good morning world wide web!! How are you all? I was up 'til pretty late last night number crunching on Excel, I would say it was fun, but I would be lying! LOL. Anywho..

Congrats to the winner of last week Lena Katrine - http://scrappeskreppe.blogspot.com/, please contact Donna with your details and she will arrange your prize.

I have a DT card to share with you this morning - over at PTD this week, the challenge is FLOWERS. You can create any project you like but it must include flowers - that could be as an embellishment, as the image or part of the image, as the background - interpret it how you wish.

The sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More, they have a massive range of digi images and papers so why not head on over and take a look. The DT had the opportunity to use some of their images for this challenge - I chose 'Daisy Days'.

This was the first time trying out my new toy - the Imaginisce i-Top tool. I went a bit over board - three home made brads and one glazed Basic Grey one! LOL. Hey ho. I love how you can create brads that match your projects EXACTLY with this tool, because you can use the same paper pack for everything!! :D

To highlight the biggest flower I added stickles and gems to altnerate petals. I paper pieced her dungarees using some denim looking digi paper from a digi kit called Spontaneous Delight - I quite like the effect!

Yummm, I love the big spots on this embossing folder. Its called 'Seeing Spots'. Polka dots are just my fave ever thing!! I added a bit of brown bakers twince for a bit of interest and tied it in a cute bow! The green and brown flowers are from Prima.
