Amethyst



On the Daring Cardmakers blog challenge this week there is a prize of a Martha Stewart butterfly punch donated by Craft Obsessions oh how I would love to win that punch! The challenge is "Amethyst" which is the birth stone for February. As its mothers day soon in the UK I have made this card. The flower is made after watching Dawn McVeys "poofy flowers" tutorial. These flowers are quite addictive.


Here is a close up of the flower. Papers are BasicGrey. I am looking forward to a crafty weekend, the forecast is for rain so I am not venturing far!

I’ve not seen these ‘poofy’ flowers before and they look lovely so think I may have to have a go at making some.

Hi Sally
Thanks for visiting my blog and your lovely comments. I'm surprised our paths haven't crossed before, looking at your blog list I see we have some in common.
Gorgeous card for the DCM challenge. I've been playing around with those poofy flowers, not made a card with them yet! lol :)x
