Double D - Flowers Galore

Hello All!
It's time once again for a new challenge at the

Today's theme is FLOWERS GALORE
and here's the beautiful mood board designed
for inspiration . . .

I'm happy to say Team Darlene is the host for this challenge
and they have come up with some amazing creations ... please be sure to
pop over and take a peek!

Here's what came together for me today . . .

Once again I'm using up some scraps and off cuts
on today's card.  I somehow end up with so many bits & bobs
that I don't want to discard so I just keep piling them up
and pull from those piles when ever I can.
Do you do that???  LOL

I began my creation with the Memory Box Calla Oval Wreath
which was colored with various ink colors that remain on my finger daubers ... then overlaid with Prima flowers.
Memory Box - Dies - Calla Oval Wreath

I first thought I would put a sentiment in the center of my wreath but then decided a birdhouse would look better.  So, I chose the Poppy Stamps Carolina Birdhouse and Memory Box Contempo Birds.

To add another layer of depth,  I die cut this pretty Memory Box Large Antilles Floral Right Corner  and popped up the flowers with small Heartfelt Creations pop dots.

Challenges to share in:

Absolutely gorgeous!

That oval flower wreath is beautiful and I love how you overlaid the corner flowers. It does really add depth to the scene. And the birdhouse within the wreath is a great idea. I must make note... So pretty with all the colors and texture. I haven't bought a new die in ages, but you do tempt me!

Borqna said...

Thank you very much!
Good luck!

So pretty, Darlene! I love the lavender background and the bright colors of the flowers. The pop of white really stands out against all of the colors.

Donna Phelan said...

Your wreath is just lovely, I like the use of the prima's with the die cut and your birdhouse and bird in the center is a neat touch, pretty idea to add the corner flowers with it!
