Polkadoodle Challenge 40 - Handmade Flowers

Welcome to another Polkadoodle challenge! This week the theme is

Handmade Flowers

It's not often I make an easel card mainly because I can never get the dimensions right but I solved it this time by making a larger central panel and adding this!

I've used Flutterby Fairy Maggie stamp (had to do some masking to add the wings - another new technique for me!) and coloured her and the toadstools with Promarkers. The papers are from the brand new cd Pretty Sweet and I've made my flowers with rolled up paper raffia and a fair dollop of glue!

A little bit of faux stitching around the edges and some inking plus a bit of ribbon and embroidery thread from my stash and my card is complete!

Good luck with the challenge - it is open until Sunday 16 October and please remember our rules!

Don't forget - we have a Design Team call at the moment so be quick and get your application in! For more details visit the challenge blog.
