Welcome fellow Bloggers, Crafters and Friends, I appreciate every single one of you.
I was lucky enough to be sent a gorgeous bag of Sweet Lilac Paper Flowers from the very lovely Linda Simpson.
Linda has been an amazing friend to me since I started crafting. I was lucky enough to meet Linda at the NEC in November and she was as lovely in person as she is online.
Linda has always been encouraging and supportive to me and someone I will always be friends with.
This morning I opened my post and out popped a bag of the most gorgeous paper flowers I have seen. They are not thin like most paper flowers, they are sturdy and hold a shape.
I set to work straight away to make a card to fit the Sweet Lilca Paper Flowers Current Challenge 'Monochrome'.
I picked an image from The Stamping Chef and coloured her in grey scale. This is the first time I have tried this, and I am pretty pleased with how she turned out.
Once she was coloured, I then picked my papers from a DoCrafts Capsule black and white paper pack, and my flowers from the stash Linda sent me from Sweet Lilac Paper Flowers.
This is the finished card....
The above photo shows the embellishments closer. The big black flower and the two large white flowers either side are from Sweet Lilac Paper Flowers.
I teamed these up with some diecut silver leaves, white feathers, black and white ribbon roses and some pearl sprays.
The flowers are the perfect size to add a statement to any card.
I finished the card by adding some black and clear flat backed gems and some white card candi.
I would recommend Sweet Lilac Paper Flowers to any crafter who loves good quality flowers in gorgeous rich and deep colours.
