The Flower Challenge #24 - Anything Goes Reminder

Its time for the reminder post for The Flower Challenge #24 which is Anything Goes so that means its a real easy one and we get lots of amazing cards. The entries are coming in thick and fast and they look fantastic so don't forget to check out The Design Team reminder posts and the other cards for inspiration.

This time I have gone Copic Colouring. Another stamp that hasn't had enough attention and is designed for ease of colouring and is already in a bouquet so you don't need to place the stamps or do any masking. This floral is called Organic Blooms and is from Mama Elephant Stamps and the site was down at the time I was writing this post so I couldn't add the link.

After Copic colouring I decided to fussy cut as I had some smudges on the card I had coloured that couldn't be covered with a gem or sequin here or there. You can just see some sparkle from the Wink of Stella so you know it has to be more sparkly than that.

Because the bouquet is quite large I decided to use a 3D embossing folder that gives the look of basket weave (they come two to a set and are from We R Memory Keepers but have apparently been discontinued) and add the flowers near the top.

Finished it off with 'It's the little Things' diecut in gold mirror cardstock and some clear glass gems.

Anyway now its time to go over to The Flower Challenge and check out what the rest of the Design Team have been up to and don't forget we have a prize this month from CAS-ual Friday Stamps so don't miss out on your chance.

Hope to see you here again soon xx
