Some more handmade flowers!!!!



















This is the colour inspiration for the challenge this week at The Play Date Cafe  chosen by Sarah Anderson.   I love all the inspiration from the DT and the photograph inspired flowers again.  My favourite I love flowers and butterflies on cards!!
I visited Vickys blog last week and she had the most amazing flowers on there made from organza, she supplied a link to Terrie's blog and a tutorial on how to make them.  Well never one to give up the chance of making my own flowers I had to give them a try, luckily I had some white Organza in my sewing box!

The flower is so delicate and pretty that I will definitely be making more, they remind me of a winter Rose and I think they would look stunning on some homemade Christmas Crackers.
They rest of the card fell into place around the flower, the background is the lace stamp from Hero Arts, stamped and embossed in black it reminds me of Antique French Chantilly Lace, the ribbons and jems are alot darker than they appear in the photograph, definitely Burgundy and not Red.  I have also embossed the base card with the letter writing folder. I actually think this card would make a romantic Christmas card, what do you think?
I haven't had much time for crafting this week even though its half term, lots of decorating to do :0(
Hope to get a few more cards made tomorrow, hope you are having a relaxing weekend.

Supplies: Hero Arts stamp S5341 Lace Background. Old Writing cuttlebug folder.  Ribbons and Jems from stash
