New Challenge

How are you today? Sunstroke, or rain-lashed?
The Challenge over at Kraftyhands Kreations Challenge blog for this month is Flower Frenzy! This runs from  today to the First Friday of June.
Create a card using a flower theme. If you use Kraftyhands artwork, then you are in with a chance to win £20 worth of touchable, stroke-able goodies from the Kraftyhands Online store. If you dont use Kraftyhands Artwork, then you get the chance to be picked for one of our Top 3, along with everyone else.

My offering this month:

For some reason my photography wasnt the best :(.

The parts come from the Fleur Francais CD. The Beautiful backing paper has been printed directly onto my card base.
Then I took one of the card sets and simply matted and layered the kit together. The dimensional bow is double layered onto the front of the card. the topper was glazed with 3D gel, and glittered.A few Pearls added to the corners, and job done.
The insert is also from the CD, and I really love the way the cat has ended up peering over the top of the Topper!
I must admit, that I had a hard time with this card, not the cards fault, but my own! I kept sticking things on wonky, sticking my fingers in things that werent quite dry.....Repeatedly! So in the end it was walk away time before I did more damage! You know, just one of THOSE days!
So I'm sure you can do a much better job than me, provided you're not having one of THOSE days, so give it a go, and enter your project!

Beautiful card, Lou. Love the colours and the fact that the cat is peering over the topper. We all have those days unfortunately. Mine usually happen when I'm in a hurry and need it done yesterday!! Love the music but it frightened me to death when I first heard it, I wasn't expecting it!! Wendy xx
