Craft Your Days Away #28 MYO Flowers

Cathy has set the challenge for the next two weeks at Craft Your Days Away and she has chosen a great one ....

Make Your Own Flowers

I chose to make a crochet flower for mine - but you can choose whatever craft you like to make your own flowers for the challenge.

Our very own DT member Shelley is sponsoring this challenge and you could win a £10 voucher to spend at her shop One Stop Card Crafts.  She has some lovely items in her shop.

Why not pop over to the challenge blog for some more inspiration from the DT?

I have used one of the cute s.w.a.l.k. stamps from Crafter's Companion and have coloured it with pro markers.  The paper is from the Tea House range from Dovecraft and I've added a bit of baker's twine and a bit of bling.  I made the flower from white crochet thread which makes a nice fine detailed flower and I've added a little brad as the centre of the flower.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch
Charizma Cards - Anything goes
Moving along with the times - Handmade flowers
Paper play - Make your own flowers
Digi stamps 4 joy - Spring and Handmade flowers
I love pro markers - Anything goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - 1,2,3, (1 flower, 2 papers, 3 jewels)
Truly Scrumptious - Mostly pink

Thanks for visiting today!
