Frilly Flowers

Hi everyone, hope you all enjoyed your weekend and that all the Mum's had a lovely day yesterday. A card today for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and a theme of 'favourite colour'. I seem to be enjoying a lot of orangey colours lately so I think it's my current favourite and I love it teamed with blue. So, the BasicGrey Marrakech paper was the starting point, I've distressed the edges of my piece and wrapped it with the orange satin ribbon. I've used my Kadoodle design 'Frilly Flowers' available at the Craft Barn and watercoloured with Ranger distress inks. The image is cut out with square nestabilities and I've used the corresponding scalloped square for the blue layer. Decorated with paper flower, punched leaves, gems, stickles on the flowers and leaves and a Woodware sentiment. TFL. Chris x
