The Flower Challenge #41 'Add Leaves'

Hi there friends, it's now February and time for a new challenge over at 'The Flower Challenge' again. It's an easy one this month and 'Add Leaves' ;)

Our Guest Designer this month is the talented Galina Filippenko (our winner for last August). Do try and visit her blog too if you can as she makes such beautiful cards.

Ok back to my cards, here they are below, (I decided to make another at the last minute). Please check out my teamies cards as they are just amazing as always. Oh and also try and join in our challenge too perhaps ;)

Kraft card
Add Leaves, Flowers, TFC

White Linen card
Kraft card
Watercolour card
Vellum by Inspire Me
Altenew Precious Peony stamps
Altenew Leaf Clusters dies
Altenew Clear Embossing ink
Wow White Embossing powder
TH Distress inks
Sequins from stash
Dylusions ink spray White Linen

I made my top fold card base using my white card then attached a top piece made from Kraft card using 3d pads for height.

I printed and embossed my flowers on some watercolour card and used my distress inks to colour them.

I then cut my leaves from white card and also from vellum & cut them all out including my flowers and attached them all to my card topper.

I added a spray of white paint and added my sequins and my card was complete.

You Inspire Me card

Smooth White card
Vellum by Inspire Me
TH Distress inks
Altenew Precious Peony stamps
Altenew Crafty Greetings sentiment
Altenew Clear Embossing ink
Wow Silver E/P 
N & T Clear Sequins

I made my base card then stamped and embossed using my flower spray stamps. I coloured my flowers and leaves and spattered a bit of paint onto my card and then added a few sequins.

The last thing was stamping my sentiment on a piece of spare vellum and then embossing it and fussy cutting it out and attaching that to my card also.

I hope you like both versions of using this pretty stamp set ;)

Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
You have until the 25th February to enter.
