My favourite flowers

Hello lovely people,

I'm still chasing my tail but did take some time out to go to the Great British Craft Festival with Debs and Sue on Sunday and oh boy, did we have a fantastic time!
Many pennies were spent and we all have lots of lovely new stash to play with :-)



Now it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and we have the theme of...

YOUR FAVOURITE...DIE CUT OR BOUGHT FLOWERS
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up with a prize of 2 digis of the winner's choice

I am a huge fan of any kind of flowers on my projects and although die cut flowers have lots of advantages, especially in the posting department, I think my 3D paper flowers will always be my favourites.
They are so pretty and I love to make little arrangements of them around my image to add dimension to my designs.

I used a new shaped base for this card, which was one of my brilliant bargains from the GBCF and it's perfectly shaped for a circular image...with flowers around it of course!

I coloured the uber cute Penelope with my Inktense pencils in slightly brighter shades than I have used before.
