Wags 'n Whiskers - Make you own Flowers

Yay... it's Friday and time for a new challenge over at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog. Sorry for my lack of creativity here over the last few weeks... This time of year is always so busy with family birthday's and so many little parties for the girls to attend. Hopefully I will be back on track now and posting more frequently!

Our talented gal Michele has a great challenge for us today is asking you to make your own flowers. You could use flower punches, ribbon flowers or anything you can think of! Michele is the queen of flowers and so creative... you can find out more about her delicious flowers over at her blog. Also Tina has created a tutorial on how she made the sheer flowers on her card. We are so honored to have such amazing cardmakers on our team :-)

Now to tell you a little about my card. This cutie patootie is called Let's Do Lunch. I have coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I also added a little stardust stickles to her cup. The gorgeous papers are the new Basic Grey Green at Heart. These along with Kioshi are back in stock... be quick though as they are going fast! I created my flowers with Spellbinder Shapeabilities. Added some buttons to my flower centers from the sherbert collection and finished with some Orange 4mm flat back pearls. I also added two of the larger 8mm flat back pearls in Pistachio Green. I have had the ticket stamp for some time now so stamped them onto the back some real tickets a friend sent me some time ago. All edges have been aged using VersaMagic Jumbo Java.

As well as the Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge my card also fits the fabulous challenge set by Joanne over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. This week is a recycling challenge. My card base is Kraft cardstock which is recycled and also the ticket :-)

I have also used the great sketch above to join in the challenge over at Truly Scrumption blog. Thanks Dawn!

Play along with us over at Wags 'n Whiskers and one lucky person who enters will win one Wags 'n Whiskers stamp of YOUR CHOICE!!

But remember, in order to be entered into the drawing for the free stamp, you MUST use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp.
