DDS Challenge ~ Make your own flowers

ballerina 005

Hi again, do you think I’ve gone over the top with my flowers on this card? lol. To be honest with you, the design of this card didn’t turn out as well as I imagined, I really wanted to show off this gorgeous ‘Ballerina’ image from the Digi Doodle Shop with a beautiful frame and my intention was to make it look like a mirror! Do you think it looks like a mirror? Nah, me either lol but we have to try these things don’t we? The new theme for the DDS Challenge is

‘Make your own flowers’

I have used a little flower punch and dabbed some pearl effects to the centres. The white flowers are from Stampin up, pretties tin and the ribbons are from the Ribbon Girl, the frame for the image was using a Nellie oval die.  The ballerina image has been coloured using promarkers.  Hope you join in our challenge this week, can’t wait to see your beautiful handmade flowers. For some inspiration pop over and see what the design team have created.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Pennys Challenge ~ Happy Birthday

Digital Tuesday ~ Spellbound

Allsorts Challenge ~ Free and Easy

One Stitch at a Time ~ Anything Goes

The Crafty Pad ~ Lots of Texture

Donna, if you don't like your card, you can send it this way. LOL. I love the framing with the flowers. I would love to scraplift your idea if you don't mind. Your coloring is excellent. I like the texture in your background paper. Hugs, dj

I have to tell you something sweet cheeks, I think it does (in fact) mimic a mirror. Not only that, I in no way think you went to far with the flowers. You've created a beautiful and unique card. Well done!
