The Flower Challenge #3 Reminder

Hi friends,here with another reminder post for
'The Flower Challenge'.

'Use an Older
 Stamp/Die or Stencil'

Please note as it's a busy month for us all the
December challenge will finish early on the
20th this time.

Still lots of time to enter though, I am sure
we all have lots of Older Stamps/Dies/Stencils.
Give them some love and make a card for
our challenge ;)

Some lovely cards entered already and please check
 out my lovely teamies cards too.

Anyway here are my DT  cards, I used the same
die as last time on my first card. The flower
is very sparkly irl ,but so hard to get a decent photo
lately with these grey apologies!

For the second one I used a die I have had for a 
while now. It's not that old but I included it because I 
have had it for a while now. By my way of thinking
 it does say 'Older' and not 'Old', so look out those
 supplies girls ;)
More pink too and more watercolouring yet again !


Lawn Fawn Storm Cloud card
White sparkly card
Sue Wilson die Classic Poinsettia
Silver twine
Pearl from stash

I cut the flower using the die and layered it up. added
 the twine and pearl & job done.


White Linen card
Watercolour card
Pink sparkly card
White foam
Penny Black Winter Joy stamp
Mama Elephant sentiment die
Clear embossing ink 
Wow White E/P
Zig Clean Colour pen Geranium red
Pink sequins from stash

I heat embossed the flower and used my Zig pen & water to colour it.
I used a die cut of white foam and another using pink sparkly
card and glued them together for height. The other sentiment is
 computer generated. The sequins do match the pink sentiment very well
 but not here sadly!

Here is the banner to add if you want to join in the challenge too!
