Sentimental Sundays Blooming Gorgeous

It's Monday and the beginning of another week, the sun is shining although it's a little chilly in the shade. I am struggling with what seems to be a cough, cold and laryngitis at the moment so I have not been very creative over the weekend and spent more time blog hopping. I did go to a car boot yesterday looking for bits and pieces and bought some old music books to use in my art work.

Whilst looking at all the wonderful blogs out there I found a new challenge site called Sentimental Sundays by Ann Vento from Raindrop Echo Designs. I have not seen her work before but love her sentiments and also the idea of having a sentiment challenge coupled with a theme. This week it is 'Blooming Gorgeous' and the challenge is to use a sentiment with flowers and there is a freebie as well. That was me hooked and here is my entry.

I bought some little plain frames at Alexandra palace the other weekend and covered one in glitter. I found a stamp I have about flowers and stamped the sentiment onto a rose paper from a CD by Papercraft World. I used K&Co backing papers and edged them with TH old paper crackle paint and when it was dry I went over it with star dust stickles. I printed out a vintage rose and a vintage bird (this one I covered in crackle accents), the butterfly is a MS punch with printed outline and covered in shabby shutters disress stickles. The lace, flowers, beads, pin and heart are all from my stash.
I have a friend who is celebrating a successful year working for herself tomorrow, so I am now going to think about a card for her.

Thankyou for stopping by and taking a look. If you leave a comment I can stop by and look at what you are doing too. I just love to take a peek and get new ideas and inspiration from all you very lovely, creative people.

Take care. LOL Bxxx
