This is a super time of year when all the flowers start to show their pretty heads and this weeks challenge #115 over at THE CRAFTY PAD is just that - FLOWERS. We want to see lots of lovely blossoms and blooms on your projects.
We are sponsored this week by CRAFTY EMMA'S STORE and the prize for the winner is a £10 gift voucher to spend in her store (excluding p&p).

The design team all used an Animal in Window image available from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS.

I decided to make an over the edge easel card for my project this week. I don't make many of these, so it made a nice change and I'm going to give it to my mum (who is in hospital), for mothers day with a big bunch of flowers and a gorgeous pink manicure set.

My image was coloured with Promarkers and my papers are from the My Minds Eye - Stella & Rose 'Mabel' pad with matching Bazzil cardstock. The flowers were cut with a Marianne Designs die with the little centre roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I don't like gems personally, but mum does so I added some square ones from Papermania and the lace is from my stash. The sentiment is also from The Crafty Pad Designs.

Entering into:
I'll let you know later when I get back from Sherwood Forest.....back now, had a lovely day.
ALLSORTS - Bloomin' Blossoms.
I DID IT CREATIONS - Anything goes.
PAPER SUNDAES - Spring Blossoms.
SCRAPPY FROGS - Flowers and lace.
CATCH THE BUG - Anything goes.
