Flower Power

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is to use a template in your project, it can be a physical one or a digi template.  I decided to delve into my Paper Boutique CD collection and chose Floral Bouquet from Volume 1.  I love these shaped card templates, you can achieve so much dimension with them.


They take a while to make, cutting out all the separate parts and layering them up but well worth the effort I think.


These cards are quite difficult to photograph, you can't really see the dimension.  I decorated the inside of the card as I normally do.

Everything used to make this card was printed from the CD.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Card Makin' Mamas - Something Old (I've had this CD for ages)
Craft Your Passion Challenge 94 - Colour Bingo (pink, purple, green)

Thank you for looking.

I love this original card! The vase looks like it has a glaze - I thought it was covered in glossy accent at first but I think it might be the white flash on the side! Just fabulous!
