Crafting for all Seasons #26 Handmade Flowers

Time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is Handmade Flowers,we're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Bugaboo.

I've used a Bugaboo image and sentiment which I've had in my stash for over six months and coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a gelly roll pen. Papers are from Pink Paislee and were a magazine freebie. Border punch is from Martha Stewart. Flowers are made with a Marianne Design die and buttons from Crafty Ribbons. Seam binding is from my stash.
Inside has been decorated with co-ordinating papers.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the what my team mates have created, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
