Tilda meets Flower Soft + challenges

Good Morning again, this is my 2nd post today, I didn't have a good night last night, was up at 3.00am, but hey!! it allowed me to browse and create, and while browsing I found this challenge blog via Jacqui, who is on the DT - it's called Flower Soft. Now I bought a couple of jars and some stems at the craft show in Glasgow a few months ago but honestly never got round to using it much.

I created a circle shape with the stem to go round Tilda and put some flower soft in her hair where the flowers should be. I think it's lovely. I used the sketch from Just Magnolia and the recipe for the card came from Simon Says, The sentiment was chosen via Crafts and me.

I used liquid platinum pearls and stickles to decorate the little round nesties. and then poppled a flower from Wild Orchid Crafts on top. The little butterly is a MS punch and i used the pink glitter card for that.

The full recipe is at the bottom of the post.

My card was created for the following Challenges:

1. Flower Soft Challenge: Are asking you to use your stems this week somewhere on your creation, there is a fab tutorial over there if you're not sure how to use the stems.

2. Just Magnolia Challenge: Have given us a wonderful sketch to follow this week.

3. Simon Says Challenge: This week it's a recipe of 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments. I've used flowers, ribbon & a butterfly as my embellies.

4. Crafts & Me Challenge: Are looking for Friends/Family projects this week. My sentiment says Friends get better with time.

Thanks for popping by, You know I really appreciate your comments, so don't leave without saying Hi.
