Flower challenge

Hi and welcome to another bellariffic challenge.  Today our challenge is to use flowers on your card - any way you choose. I was excited when I saw this weeks challenge, because I loooovvvee flowers, anything nature related.

My image is a cutie called Little peep's flower vase- I've coloured her before but I just love these peeps, and since she had flowers in her image - bonus.  Also a great image which can be used for many occasions- double bonus!  Okay, so here she is...

Now is she adorable or what?  You know the drill, I always start with bella's bestest paper to stamp my images on. I used copics to colour and shaded with pencils. I came across this 12x12 sheet of dp the other day, which was still sitting on my table - it has flowers on it, great colours, so that's what I based my colouring on.  My card base is a grand spellbinder die -called grand scallop squares - I so love these.  Lately Beate has been using these larger size dies for her card base, so after seeing her beautiful creations I so needed a few of them. Next you will notice the gorgeous punched flower strip along the bottom under the image -when my BFF Carla use this border punch on this card I knew I had to pull my MS punch out and use it.  I'm glad I did, I love how it turned out. While your at Carla's blog be sure to check out all her other gorgeous creations! She is the queen of dies, and a great inspiration.

To finish this off, I added lots of glitter, glossy accents on the circle flowers, ribbon,  a prima rusty orange flower, and some punched leaves using MS punches.  I'm very happy how this turned out.

Hop over to bloggabella to see all the other gorgeous creations.  Leave a comment for your change to win $10 in bella bucks!

For next week, we are back to another great sketch by Ebru.  You can email your card to Emily or upload on SCS using the keyword BELLARIFFIC1712.

Thanks for looking in today. Have yourself a wonderful weekend!
