PaperPlay Challenges - Make Your Own Flowers !

Oooh what a lot of hoppers we have ! I hope you are all enjoying the Simon Says Stamp Stamp-tember Blog Hop ? If you are looking to take part in the hop then please click HERE and it will take you directly to that post.

It is Thursday again and time for another PaperPlay Challenges !

This week our challenge is "Make Your Own Flowers"

We are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp !

You may remember a while back I made a similar card to this one well, this one I have given to Izzy's best friend who is starting school with her on Monday and they are in the same class.

The DP's are a mix of My Mind's Eye "Hattie" and October Afternoon "Report Card". These have all been machine stitched.

The image is of course by Lili of the Valley and she has been coloured with a mix of ProMarkers and Copics. I also covered her shoes in glossy accents to look like patent.

The flowers were punched from a retro flower punch.

The brads and ribbon are from my stash.

The wording was creating using a Dymo.

I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your handmade blooms !
