Die Cut Dreams Challenge #98 Flower Power

Happy Monday everyone and here's hoping Mr Blogger has posted for me as I am working a few extra hours at the moment before I move to my new job (not my choice I hasten to add - redeployment).
Thank you so much to everyone who played along with our Make a gift bag or box challenge. It never ceases to amaze me how creative you all are.

For our next challenge we are asking you to

Use 5 or more flowers on your creation......

This is a card I made for a colleague of mine recently - I think the age is obvious!!!
I have used the Flower Fairy Rose and papers from the CD Rom Rose and Lavender. I used watercolour crayons and a bit of glitter on the wings. The numbers are Crafters Companion too - have had them fo ryears and finally using them! Here is a closeup...............

The embossed background is a cuttlebug folder - script texture and was done on pearlised card. I have distressed the papers using the Tim Holtz distresser and then inked the edges. I have used the Marianne Creatable Swirl leaf on white glitter card. I have used flowers (well glittered) and lace from my stash and here is another closeup..............

I look forward to seeing what you come up with - I know they will all be fabulous.
Don't forget to check out my team mates for some more inspiration - their links are on my laeft sidebar.

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes,

Scrappy Frogs - Vintage,

Allsorts Challenge - Flowers and Swirls,

Fairytale Challenge - Flowers and lace,

Stamp Something Challenge - Anything Goes (Final Challenge),

Stampin' for the Weekend - Tickled Pink,

Have fun.
