Sunday challenge#6

Well its Sunday again and time for another Challenge.

This weeks Challenge I thought I would go easy on you!

It is .......Floral...


Using a download or downloads I want you to incorporate Floral with it in your card,layout or item,it could be Dottie's dress,Georges flowers,Holly,backing paper,embellishments whatever your imagination can conjure up,we'd love to see them. Don't forget to leave a comment so we can go and have a look at your wonderful creation!!

There are some fabulous example cards from the design team to give you some ideas.

~Nicola~ I used Ballerina Dottie from 'Dress up Dottie' using rose petals for her tutu,the flowers are from 'Wings and Flowers' disc available at Charmed cards,I added string beads to the flowers and her tutu,also I embossed the frame with Curly Swirls Cuttlebug folder
~Louise~ Louise has made a simply stunning card using 'Leo' from 'Zodiac Dottie' and Dream Street papers,which are available from Charmed Cards, the orchids from Primas are beautiful,as the pink carries through to the paper.
~Juliet~ Juliet has done a fantastic job,using the 'Ice skater' image from the Christmas Collection,she used non-traditional Christmas colours and they work fantastically with the image!! The paper is Basic Grey Two Scoops



~Karen~


This is Karen's amazing card,look at all the little gems and brads! She has used 'Corner Cats' from the Cat collection and Dottie from the 'Dress up dottie' collection ~Nicola~


This journal was made using 'The Silhouette cat' from the Cat Collection .Using my ever faithful iron-on transfer papers, running it though the printer to produce a black and white image,then added the colour with a red watercolour pen and the faux stitching was made using a Archival fine tip black pen.



This card is using 'The Sleeping Kitty ' image from the Cat Collection ,printed on Basic Grey papers, I paper pieced the cat with Sultry BG & the flowers are taken from 'Wings and flowers' disc,available at Charmed Cards and Craft . I cut an aperture in the card and added the sentiment inside the card.
Have fun trying out the Challenge

Oh my word! Where do I begin? All of the cards are jaw droppingly stunning. Juliet, yours brought such a big smile to my face, that Dottie is so comical the way she's zipping past on her skates so confidently, I can just imagine her going crash any minute! Nicola, well, what can I say? Simply amazing, I love how you've cut out the circle aperture on the sleepy cat one. The book looks fab too, I'm going to have a go at making a cushion with some of that printable cotton today - it's for a magazine though so I'm not allowed to show you.
Karen, I don't know where you get your ideas from, what an imagination you have! I love the cats in the corner and I love the way you have flower Dottie peeping through. Very clever! Well done girlies. I've patted myself on my back for mine too. xx

Not so happy with this week's card, but I've had a go! I think I'm just tired, had a busy weekend, etc. Might do another one later this week!

Glad you said we could use holly cos I'm not particularly a floral kind of a girl!

Thanks again for the challenge - looking forward to next week too!
