Flowers, Flowers

Good morning everyone! Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Delightful Challenges:


Yes that's right the theme this week is Flowers and we want to see 5 or more on your paper project!
You do not have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but if you do you can enter twice!  Here is my card:

I think there are five flowers on there!!  For my image I have used the gorgeous Thank You Flowerpot which you can purchase here at Digital Delights. I have coloured the image with my Copics and added some Viva Decor Pearl Pen to the flower head. I added loads of Stickles to the Thank You.  I have paper pieced the Flower pot and ribbon using the papers from Wendy's Sweetheart Digital Papers which you can get at Digital Delights here. For extra dimension I have popped the flower petals up on some silicone glue, you can probably see that better on this picture:

The gingham paper is also from the Sweetheart Paper pack (love this pack - one of my favourites).  I have cut the image out with Spellbinders and distressed the edges with some Spun Sugar DI.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from my stash.  The dies I have used are Marianne for the leaves, Memory Box for the lacy rosette behind the flowers and an X Cut for the border.  Here is a view of the inside:

Because it had so many flowers on I had to make a box:

Our sponsors this week are:
