The Shabby Tea Room – Week #108 – ‘Homegrown Flowers’

Happy Good Friday everyone,

Today has been a bonus day for me.  It is normally a work day but since it is a holiday here in Canada I got to play in my crafting studio all day!

I am creating a card for this weeks The Shabby Tea Room Challenge.

Lenet has created a wonderful challenge this week.

The challenge is to create a card or project incorporating handmade flowers.  The flowers must be handmade — paper, fabric, felt … anything, but cannot be manufactured.

I have been working on this card all week but every time one of the other ladies enters their lovely card I think my flower is not good enough and start again.

I have a ton of flowers made so it will be easy for future cards! lol

Here is my design:

I decided to use my Sure-Cuts-A-Lot to create a shaped card instead of using the traditional rectangle.  It takes some practice but once you figure it out it’s not so hard at all to make different card shapes.

Thank you for visiting and have a great Easter weekend,
