Spring Flowers!

Hello and welcome to my blog,

Well here I am with my Flower Challenge!! I really didn't think I would make this challenge as I am so not I nto flowers. I have a jar full and they are the furtherest thing from my mind when creating.  Then I remembered Mothers Day is fast approaching and I haven't even started on my cards.  I know my mum likes flowers so I will give this challenge a go and this is what I have come up with.  The only way I could enjoy creating these flowers was to make them more vintage looking.

My Tim influence in this particular project was to use his Layering Stencil embossing technique from A Compendium of Curiosities III which I first applied onto a tag and then die cut from there.  I also love the way Tim uses photos on his fragment pieces so I decided to use photos on some cabochon.

Here is the link to make your own Pop Up Box Card....which I first found on Shelly Hickox blog......

There are quite a few tutorials on You Tube showing how to create a Pop Up Card.

Here is the link to A Vintage sure to pop on over and see all the amazing creations

I hope you like my Pop Up Card.

Have a great day!!!!
