Morning Everyone,

I hope you are well.  I can't believe how quickly the time goes and now it's getting cooler and the daylight hours shorter we're getting to my least favourite time of year.

It's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and the theme for this fortnight is to showcase a project using your favourite of either Flowers or Ribbon (and don't forget to tell us why it's your fave please).

I do have lots of ribbon and flowers, but I've chosen flowers as my favourite between the two.  If you add flowers to a card I think it makes them a little bit more special for the recipient and you can make shabby chic style cards with mainly flowers too, which I love to do now and then.

The papers for this card are from Dovecraft and I've used a chipboard sentiment which I've only partially glittered to try and make it look a bit more shabby.  Dies used are Go Kreate for the cream card, Ivy from Joy Crafts and the little tassels (which I love) are Marianne Design.

The sponsor for the challenge is

with a £10 voucher for the lucky winner

I hope you can join us for the challenge and if you'd like to pop over here you'll be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the DT.
