Fluttery Crafts Challenge #1 - I'm on the DT!

That's right - I'm on the DT for this fab shop - Flutterby Crafts! Yay me! There will be monthly challenges set and the lucky winner each month will win a £10 voucher to spend in the shop. The first challenge is called "Everything is Coming Up Roses" and I hope you can all take some time out from your Christmas cards to join in! Here is my offering......

I started by layering on some yellow Core'dinations cardstock onto a square blank. Onto this, I mounted some gorgeous Making Memories paper that I have had yonks but have never had the nerve to cut! The image is a Magnolia which I (luckily) received in a RAK earlier in the year. I have coloured Edwin with my beloved Promarkers and highlighted the corners with a paper piercer. The card was finished with a flower, some ribbon and a metal 'friend' tag, attached with some chain from my new jewellery making stash.

I struggled a bit with this one as it was all a bit too 'busy' and nothing quite seemed to look right! I hope you all think it turned out alright in the end though!

Please play along if you can!
