Fabulous Friday - Lot's of Papers :-)

Hello out there my blogging buddies.  How has your week been?

I am trying to get my crafting head back on, but in order to do that I have decided to have a major sort out in my craft room.  That means binning, purging and re-organising :-)

I am giving myself two weeks to get it all done!  We have a garage sale weekend coming up, so we are having a good sort out of the girls games cupboards and their bedrooms too :-)  Guess we are all in on it :-)

Anyways, Polkadoodles challenges are now Always Anything Goes - so why not come along and enter x

For my little bit of Friday inspiration I have used the classic Rose Budd Collection for all the papers.

I have used the Mojo Monday sketch to create my layers, but I have added an oval using the beautiful Elegant Nesting Dies (the larger of the set of 3) for my sentiment panel to sit on.

For the inside I have used the same papers as the front and then added a message panel using the middle size of the Nesting Dies.

The flowers are made using the wonderful Flowers 2 Die, inking the edges and adding some pearl dots to the centres.

For the leafy elements I have used the Flower Flourish Die and the Elegant Flourish Die, again a little ink was added to the edges.

I love making up these little flowers.  I also placed some foam tape under the oval sections to add some more depth to the card.

I am entering this in the following challenges.
