Hi Everyone,

It's time for the start of another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using your favourite flower (don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite).

The sponsor for this challenge is Wild Orchid Crafts with a prize of a £12 gift voucher for the winner.

I love all flowers, but have chosen the rose as it is typically English and they come in many beautiful colours and varieties.  The fragrance of some of them can be gorgeous.


I made an easel card with a pre-coloured image from a LOTV art pad.  I die cut a frame using Lil Inkers dual stitched circle dies, used Nitwit collections paper and added a Stampin Up sentiment, satin ribbon, pearls and 2 mini die cut butterflies by Cheery Lynn.  I tried to keep the card as flat as possible when folded down so that it would go through that dreaded little slot at the post office so no other embellishments were added.

I hope you like it, it's my first attempt at an easel card.

If you would like to pop over to As You Like It you'll be able to see all the lovely designs by the rest of the team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Ribbon Girl - Any Image
Noor Design - Anything Goes
Paper Creator - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Use ribbon and/or pearls

Thank you for visiting and I love to read any comments you may leave.
