DT card for OSAAT 'Flowers' challenge

Another Sunday already ! Challenge time at OSAAT again :o) and this week the challenge is 'Flowers'.

Our sponsor this week is

Don't forget the July collab is still available for free when you spend £10 or more in the Stichty bear store

And onto my cards, as I have been lucky enough to make 2 projects this week :o)



I have used some old freebie papers from a magazine for the backing papers on this card and layered them with pink and yellow.

The digi stamp is called 'Birthday Lucy ' by Recce's scrap pieces.  I have cut her out witha nesties scalloped circle and coloured her with pro markers. I have then used different small flower pucnhes to creat the frame around the edge and used gems in the centres of the flowers.

The sentiment is from a Lili of the valley set and has been punched out and inked with yellow and pink, then more flower and leaf punches have been used to create the embellie at the top.

Close up of the punched flowers.

I will be entering this card intothe following challenges


And onto my second card

I have used backing papers from Kate Knight that were free with a magazine about a year ago! I have cut the image out with a nesties lace square then wrapped ribbon around the edge.

Side view

I have printed the image 4 times , coloured it with pro markers then decoupaged it up.  I have used flower soft for the very tiny flowers at the top of the picture.
The sentiment is from a fizzy moon set of stamps and has been punched out and I have again used small flower punches to make a frame around it, with gems at their centres.

I hope you like my projects.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
