Flower Power

Hello there and I hope your weekend has got of to a good start, it is lovely and sunny here today so fingers crossed!

I am so running behind with everything this week. Big apologies to Paula and all the rest of my DT buddies at A Little Bit Crafty I should have posted this Thursday!!  There is a brand new challenge at A Little Bit Crafty with some smashing prizes this month and the theme is Flower Power.  Here is my card:


I have used Penny Black Field of Poppies which I just love, they are my favourite flower. I coloured it with my Copics and Chalks.  Cut out with Spellbinders Labels One and I used A2 Curved Borders One with a bit of ribbon to finish. Not sure where the sentiment is from.  Here is a side view:


As I mentioned, we have some fabulous sponsors this week:
