Fabulous Friday - Flowers

Hellooo - Happy Friday.

The girls have an extra long weekend, as it is a PD day today and then Family Day on Monday.  So a much needed break, even though a short one.

Did you all have a good week?  I really don't know where these weeks are going. Soon be Christmas LOL!

Anyhow, today is the start of a new challenge theme over at Polkadoodles.  For this fortnights theme we are All things Kraft, so include some Kraft on your creation.

For my creation today, I have used some of the new cut files that Nikky has in the shop.  The links are below for the cut files I used, but there are more in the shop too.  You can check them out HERE.

I used a Kraft card base, and the background paper is from the In The Garden section of the Studio 12 Picknix 1 collection.  I added a sentiment from the Cherryblossom Lane CD.

For the flowers, I cut several different sizes.  I inked them up too as I didn't want them to look so flat. I also used a stylus to shape the flowers a little.

For the inside I used the same papers and then added a flat flower to finish off the message panel.

To finish off the flowers I used some Pewter pearls from Flourish with a Bling, and a little Thank you tag.

Love these flowers and they are such a perfect shape for layering.

Your turn now to get Krafty :-)  The challenge is open for entries until Noon GMT, Friday 27 February.  

Prizes this fortnight are - Random Org winner £10 voucher to spend in the Digi Download store and our favourite Top 3 will each win a £2 voucher to spend too.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
