Flower Power over at LLLC

Morning everyone. Go easy on me over at LLLC Blog - it's my first turn hosting the Friday Inspiration post, so if anything is missing or it's all messed up.. I apologise. Blogger has been playing up and it's got me really annoyed! Hopefully it will let me type this post up without any holds.

This week the DT have really rocked my socks with their


creations. Wanna see what I've got for ya?!

I've used the adorable Sugar n' Spice Marci. I actually love this little girl. This was a birthday card I made for my boyfriends mam. She's always whipping up delicious sweet treats, so I thought she'd be perfect!!

I can hear your.. RED AND GREEN, LOU?! Yip, it's imprinted onto my brain me thinks.. HA! I've used some delicious papers from My Minds Eye Rosy collection, and that's the main colour theme.. so it was only right I coloured the image to match.

As for the aspect of 'FLOWER' the whole show has been scattered with Wild Orchid Craft goodness. A cherry blossom and some 10mm and 15mm roses in red and cream. Yum. :) I think I might get me a hot glue gun soon, as I get myself in a terrible mess adhereing these beauties to the card using Glossy Accents. My fingers were in a total state.

I punched two little jewellery tags using and SU! punch and stamped a '4 you' sentiment on both using Close to Cocoa ink - that side just looked a little bare once the card was finished. I used a Circle Postmark sentiment from Whimsy Stamps also stamped in Close to Cocoa, and die cut it using a nestie. I added some liquid pearls to every other scallop as well as to other places on the card.

Here is a close up of more liquid pearl goodness, as well as a moonstone brad from WOC and a snowflake style spacer. The stamped flower is from an SU! set, I have fussy cut it out and curled the petals only slightly. I made another brown one and a red one and added those to the card. Can't have too many flowers on a FLOWER POWER card, right?

Last but not least here is a shot of the inside of the card. I used up a few scraps of paper and stamped a sentiment from LOTV in Real Red ink onto the kraft cardstock. I then took the same flower stamped I used on the front and stamped some randomly in Close to Cocoa ink to tie in with the front.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
