Whoopsi Daisy - pile on the flowers

Gosh where did those two weeks go! It's time for another challenge at  Whoopsi Daisy  and as we now have two teams it's team A's turn to share their inspiration with you. The theme this week is to pile on the flowers.


I've used an image from sheet #343 and coloured with promarkers and highlighted with stickles and a gelly roll pen before die cutting with a nestie oval and matting onto a fancy scalloped oval. Papers are from Wild Rose Studio and were left over from another DT project. Base mat is made with a Martha Stewart PATP decor fan punch. The flourish is a Marianne Design die and all other die cuts are from my Spellbinders Lattice set. Card is finished with some gingham ribbon, a doiley, flowers and pearls from my stash. Sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio.
All the burgundy card came from my bit box - the large mat is actually two pieces joined together! 

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team and remember if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image you could win 2 image sheets, 1 sheet will be awarded to a winner using any other image.

Challenges entered:
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - Bingo (pearls, punch and flowers)
Fairy Fun Fridays - anything with flowers
House of Gilli - ribbon and sparkle
Poodles Parlour - anything goes
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Card Makin Mamas - spring photo

  5. Wow Carol - this is really fabulous. Super image and so much lovely detail too, I've had a jolly good nose and it's truly stunning. Ha, ha - I was looking for the join in the mat you mentioned, tried lifting the ribbon but couldn't reach through the laptop screen :)
