May Flowers

Afternoon everyone. Yes I know I should have posted this earlier but I took the morning off to go to our local market & pick up some veggies :-)

We have a fab challenge for you over at Daisy Doodles this week. We would like to see Flowers on your cards. I have to say I had great fun creating my card this week :-)

I do like it when I can "go to town" on a card lol!!! I have made a champagne bottle & placed it onto a DL card with has been covered with this gorgeous rose paper. I followed the template instructions although using peel offs I created the trellis effect where the cork is. I added the wedding bells which were coloured using mainly Promarkers. I then added a mixture of flowers to the large label & decorated with stickles. The neck label reads "Congratulations to the Special Couple.

Don't forget you no longer need to use a DD image to enter the challenge, so lets get those flowers out ladies x Clare x
