PAPER PIECED FLOWERS


Morning Everyone,

I saw this card on Pinterest a while ago and thought it would be a good way of using up scraps so I thought I'd have a go with my favourite colour combination of lilac and mint green and this is what I came up with.





I'm quite pleased as I've used 2 stamp sets I've had for ages and never used! They are Inkadinkado flourishes and Dreamees stitched flowers.  I stamped the flourishes in silver metallic and then stamped a few random flowers and leaves onto the scraps and fussy cut them out.  I've used vellum for the Kaisercraft sentiment and added a few enamel dots too.

Hubby went to Wembley yesterday to watch Lincoln City play in a football final so I had a luxury day of crafting and doing whatever I pleased, but I had to add dog walking in and a bit of ironing too.

I would like to thank Wendy for becoming my latest follower and hope she enjoys seeing my makes.

Lynne x

Goodness me, the button said I wasn't a follower, but I was sure that I was! Are you following me, I wonder? I hope Blogger isn't fussing about again, but no worries, I've corrected it! I think your lilac and mint green CASE of the Pinterest card is fantastic in every way, Lynne! So lovely for a spring birthday and well done using your NBUS!! Hugs, Darnell
