Paper flowers

Decided to have a go at making the lovely crepe paper flowers I've seen around. Think I made them a wee bit big but was slightly pleased with my first attempt. The image is Karens Doodles, the spotty paper is Funkyfairies and I added some embossed card. Also stitched everything in place on my sewing machine.

I am entering this into these challenges:
1. paper Sundaes - make your own flowers
2. Stamp Something - flowery
3. Cupcake Inspirations - photo inspiration
4. Stamp, Scrap and doodle - use a digi
5. The Pixie Cottage - double up
6. Creative Craft - here comes the bride

If you fancy a little blog hop today then pop over to CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DIGITAL DESIGNS and join the fun

I'm sure Helen and James will love their card and your flowers are fab, I remember making huge crepe paper flowers from Blue Peter when I was little and mum so kindly had them in a vase in the corner till they faded even though the dogs(2 german shepherds) use to knock them over everytime they wagged their tales. Thanks for joining us at creative cratf challenges fab card and fun image.
