A Passion for Flowers...

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme this week is 'A Passion for Flowers'. Easy hey! This was a challenge with a fabulous twist for us DT girlies as we were given a 'kit' to work with by the lovely Brenda. Our wonderful sponsors this week are Ruth Hamilton owner of A Passion for Stamps and designer of a few of the items in our DT kit which is shown below AND The Ribbon Girl.

A Passion for Flowers

So onto my DT card, I used some of the stash provided in my DT kit and added a couple of other bits. I ooohhhed and aaarrrhhhed at all the things Brenda had sent me, the colour scheme is very me. I chose to make a focal point of the beautiful domed window diecut from the DT kit (this is made with a Tonic die designed by Ruth Hamilton). I matted it onto some DP and added a bird cage and a fussy cut flower vase image. In order to draw the eye to the window I kept the other details quite minimal - some ribbon, a flower and some gems...

A sideways view to show the dimension...
Image - A Rose in a Glass Vase coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Paper - Bluebell by MME (provided by Brenda in my DT kit)
Gems, ribbon, twine, domed window die cut, leaf shapes (provided by Brenda in my DT kit)
Flower & bird cage charm - Hobby House from My Mum's Craft Shop
Other - brown chalk ink pad
