Pink Petticoat Flower Challenge

Liz over at Pink Petticoat has set her challenge for June - to use up PP papers to make flower embellishments. The prize for one lucky blogger will be the gorgeous Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch, defo would love one of these!

On to my entry then. I made the flowers using one of my Anna Griffin templates that I've had for years. It's basically a draw and cut out process, perfect for when BF has a load of old c**p on the telly :o) I got the odd funny look from him, a few grunts when I asked him what he thought, and then complaints that I was taking up all the sofa, shame eh! Note: I did catch him holding one up and looking at it this morning, then he quickly put it down pretending indifference.

First piccie shows a group shot of them all and you can see I used
PP and other scraps of paper.

Here is a close up of one of the PP ones. I used the big dots double cream papers, swirls paper and one of her Big Fellas letters.

And here is a close up of the one of the other ones. This used some of my Anna Griffin scraps and a button from last week's bootsale finds.

Overall I think they turned out okay. They are large flowers measuring 4" across and would make great embellishments just on their own on the front of a square card. I would probably add some glitter to the edges of the petals as well on some of them.

Now all I have to do is keep my fingers crossed that mine is the name pulled out of the hat!

Hope you like them and thanks for popping by today xx
