The Flower Challenge #26 'A Special Occasion'

Hi there friends, I am here once more to share my latest DT card for 'The Flower Challenge'. I can't believe it's November already......it will soon be Christmas, ...are you ready.......no me neither lol!

Anyway onto my card, this month our theme is 'A Special Occasion', so Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, New Baby...so many options. See all the cards made by our talented Design Team if in doubt.

Right onto my cards, I made two in the end, do come and have a closer look...and of course enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

Floral Birthday card

CAS, Flower Challenge, Special occasion

Smooth White card
AltENew Floral Art stamps
Avery Elle Loads of Wishes stamp
AltEnew Watercolour inks
AltEnew Clear Embossing ink
Altenew Rose Gold E/P
Neat & Tangled sequins



















I made my card base and another panel to go on top. I then stamped and embossed my flowers  and leaf. After that I watercoloured my flowers. I stamped my sentiment on another strip of spare card and added some watercolour to the edges then attached it to my card. A sprinklng of sequins and my card was complete.










Hydrangea Birthday card

Flower Challenge

Smooth White card 
AltEnew Mega Hydrangea stencil
Hero Arts Shadow ink Soft Sky
Lawn Fawndamentals Ballet Slippers ink 
Avery Elle Loads of Wishes sentiment stamp 
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Faber Castell pencils
 I made an A6 top fold card base and then added another smaller panel on top. I used my inks over my stencil, blending the colours as I went. Then I used my pencils to add some shading to my flowers.
Not used to using pencils so I went gently...need more practice I fear lol , but I did enjoy the process.
I added my stamped sentiment and my usual sprinkling of sequins and my card was finished.



 Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
you have until the 25th November. We are back on the 15th with
reminder cards.
