Daring Card Makers - Elemental Inspiration

I did a stint at the start of last year as a Guest Designer for Daring Card Makers which I loved so imagine how long it took me to reply when I was asked if I'd like to join the team permanently?!  Not that long, I can tell you!

This is my first 'full time' challenge and as its the first Friday challenge of the month, its an inspiration challenge and the requirement is to use at least three elements from the photo:

I've used papers that I found in my stash when having a clear out and a tidy up over Christmas - they are from the now not available Funky Hand - Now That's Funky cd - Coffee With Pals collection.  I only had small pieces of the printed sheets so had to be creative with what I had!

I've used handles from a Primark bag plus coloured offcuts of card with Promarkers so the die cut flowers would match the colour pallet.  The charm is from my stash along with the half white pearls and I've used a Cuttlebug die for the lettering.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Creative Knockouts:  Anything Goes
Moving Along With The Times:  Flowers
Seize The Birthday:  Birthday
Double D Challenges:  Birthday
Simon Says Wednesday:  Patterned Paper
