A Flowery 'Thank You' With Two Challenges in One


Hope we're all having a nice weekend and looking forward to the extra lie-in in the morning here in the UK?

The brand new Christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley were launched today and they've been so incredibly popular, especially the new James the Bear stamps which are so gorgeous, James has got to be my favourite character. There's also some beautiful traditional images, cute polar bears and little squirrels too!

Onto today's card and this one combines too challenges in one; the new challenge over at Papertake Weekly which is 'Flower Power' and the 'T For...Thank you' challenge over at ABC Challenges which is a new challenge for me but it looks really interesting, I missed a few letters so far but never mind! =)

And here is the card I've made:

I used an image from the Jack, Patch and Puss Art Pad from Lili of the Valley, the pads are so fantastic for a quick card, and I cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large.

The sentiment is also from LOTV, from Set 10 - A5 Verses and was also cut out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large. The back oval on the sentiment and the image are both from the Spellbinders Floral Ovals set.

The flowers and the leaves are Marianne Designs Chinese Rolled Roses and I did two with stripy centres and one with a plain green centre.

The paper are from the 'Animal Antics' paper pad by First Impressions and I was a bit worried about using two papers are they usually look a bit boring when I only use two but I think that the gorgeous stripes and then the lovely Floral Ovals stop it from looking plain.

Hope you like it!
