A little pot of flowery goodness

Hello my lovelies, well what a busy summer holidays we have had and some beautiful weather here on the South coast and even though we couldn't spend as much time at the beach and in the pool as we would have liked due to my daughter breaking her wrist in the second week of her hols we still had an amazing time.  I always feel sad towards the end of the school hols but also a little happy as it marks the start of autumn and I can already feel the change in the air in the morning to that beautiful autumnal crispness and I just love it.  It really is my most favourite season of all!

Anyway, I am here this evening to share with you my card for Crafters Companion The Inspirers team and as I love autumn so much it seemed only fitting to pick some beautiful rich autumnal colours.  I sat and made up some gorgeous flowers using the fab Die'sire 'Small Sunflower' die and wanted to use them on a card as the main focal point rather than just mere embellishments and thought they would be ideal on a flowerpot card.

I loved making these pretty flowers they were so easy to do and they end up a decent size too.  Once they were made I wasn't sure what to use for their centres so opted to use some Collall 3d glue gel and sprinkled some glitter over them.  They turned out really well.

There are a couple of challenges I would like to enter my card into:-

Simon Says Stamp  -  anything goes

Crafty Ribbons challenge  -  anything goes with ribbon

Okay that's all from me folks.  I'm hoping to get a little blog visiting in this evening before I climb the wooden hill to bedfordshire.

Take care peeps and happy crafting.
