Crafty angels week 22 - fantastic flowers and ABC one paper challenge



Following challenges means that I am using lots of old stash as I start to think about what I have to make the challenge. Crafty Angels this week wanted flowers - so I broke open some fairly new Prima roses and mixed them with some really old flower buds and leaves. All the card came out of my recycling box (it's headed for the local community group eventually) and the paper is some 7 gypsies that has been in my stash for several years at least.
Layered nestabilities make the frame with a printed sentiment embellished with a few pink pearls.
I'm going to try this again with a stamped image for Mother's Day I think....

have a great day whatever you get up to....

Minerva this is absolutely gorgeous! I love this frame that you've created, and all the floral embellishments and pearls are the perfect touch. These would make wonderful wedding favors - thank you for the inspiration as I am in charge of my sister's wedding next summer. :D
