Get Funky Challenge - Polkadots and Flowers

It's time for a brand new challenge at Get Funky! I am the hostess this month and the theme I have chosen is:

Polkadots and Flowers

Nice and easy! The main rule that we have is that you MUST use a Funky Hand product in your creation and there is always a freebie to help you on your way for the month.

I've used the fab Rainbow Polkadots download for my handbag card - the template I've used is actually a blank bag and I've simply drawn around it! The handbag actually folds flat for posting which is handy!

I've added a faux stitch around the edges in a black fineliner pen and added a Queen and Co faster with a pearl centred brad to hold it all together.

The flowers are made from a type of angel hair paper and tissue paper all layered and in reducing sizes - I used my Spellbinder scallop circle die to cut them out and again added a pearl centred brad to hold it all together.

Good luck with the challenge - for more details please go to the challenge blog!
