Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 71 - Make your own flowers

This time at Crafty Cardmakers the challenge is to make your own flowers.  These can be ribbon, paper, fabric, die cuts, tissue, embroidered, in fact anything you choose so long as it's hand made and not store purchased.
We have two great sponsors: One Stop Card Crafts who are offering a £10 voucher and Digi Doodle Shop who are offering a $10 gift voucher.




I started with a white card blank and added a layer of green card.  On top of this I added some textured purple card and some lovely K&Co Le Fleur paper.  Then I added a strip of the green card with a white border punched with a Stampin' Up Scallop Border punch.  All the flowers were made with the following punches: Paper Shaper Daisy; Woodware Blink Blink; Woodware Multi Sun Flower; Woodware Daisy; XCut Mini Holly; L-Em Rock Fern.  Finally I added a dot of Lavender Lace Liquid Pearls to the centre of the tiny white flowers.
