Make Your Own Flowers

Still working long hours at the moment, and today to make it worse, I found an awful surprise when I went to my car :( .. someone crashed into it, and of course left :( I'm really annoyed :(

Anyway today it's Wednesday again, supposed to be my favorite day of the week as I share my DT card for the challenge at 

The theme for this week is
For the flowers I decided to use my Marianne Creatables die and made some roses. It's been some time since I used this die... sometimes we buy new stuff and forget the oldies, which are still so nice I think. 

The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch, DP was a magazine freebie, border dies are Cheery Lynn and I did the bottom embossing with my hougie board. The border embossing is a Sizzix one.
We were so lucky this week to be sponsored by Pink Gem Designs as each of us DT girls got to choose an image to play with. The one I chose is this gorgeous vintage stamp, Amelia. 

The prize for the winner this week is 3 digis of their choice.

Entering my card in these challenges today.

This is a really beautiful card and deserves to be entered into the challenge but you've not linked back to Lothian Crafts but to your own. Please correct it as I'd hate for such a stunning card not to be eligible.

Hi Dora

So sorry to read about your car!! That happened to me once when my car was parked in a restaurant car park .. .. and surprise, surprise the CCTV camera didn't reach as far as the space I was in!!

I hope your car isn't too damaged.

Beautiful card. Love your colours, papers and gorgeous flowers.

Love Jules xx
