Flowers Galore

Good morning folks, the weekend is nearly here and hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. I'm hoping this scheduled post pops up as I'm at the hairdressers having my hilights done (it has to be early or I can't park!).
Firstly I must tell you that Nikky will be on Create & Craft tomorrow at 12 noon and 4pm with the lovely Rosemary Merry and the brand new collection that we've all been working on and I know you're going to love it as much as we do.
Now for details of this week's challenge over at Polka Doodles with the theme chosen by me - Lots Of Flowers. This could be backing papers, stamped floral images, handmade or paper flowers and so on - I'm sure you get the gist!

As I was short on time this week (I'm sure you can guess why!), I used a coloured image from the Sugarplum Daisy CD which I matted on pink.
I then made a tall card blank and turned it round to horizontal rather than vertical and covered this with pretty paper from the CD. I added a floral border across the centre and then glued on the image panel as shown in the photo.
I made a layered flower using a Marianne Design die set from scraps of pink paper fixed together with a pearl brad. I added a green leafy flourish die cut using another Marianne die and finished off with a circular sentiment and a butterfly.

Challenges for my card:
Little Miss Muffet Challenges - Rainbows, Clouds or Wings
Fashionista Challenge - Simply Summer

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx
