Louvre flowers?!

IF YOU WANT TO JOIN MY CRAFTY RIBBONS CANDY click HERE!


Hi everyone. My kitchen men are here and working very hard. Lots of noise and excitement for Squirt!
The weather has not been kind though and it has lashed with rain all morning, lots of muddy feet and wet cardboard! But its coming together nicely:)
My card today is for a man to give to his wife. I went with this gorgeous little Tatty Ted decoupage bear.
I made my own flowers using leftovers from my louvre blinds!! I am so excited about this (doesn't take much lol). When I was cutting them at the weekend I had this enormous pile of left overs and just couldn't bear to dump it (much to my hubby's dismay). So I needed something to finish this card off and decided to try cutting it with my marianne dies (worked perfectly) then coloured them with spectrum noirs as they are nice and juice. Choose a bit of a mad pink but it does look nice together. So I will have a mountain of flowers to make now to use all this stuff up. I love the texture you get with it. So am I deluded are should I chuck the lot??

This is a little sneak of one of my dt cards were I made some little blue flowers. Think I am getting better with practice lol.
