Pretty in Purple

It's time for another challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and this time we have chosen the theme HANDMADE FLOWERS, they don't have to be extravagant or fancy just as long as they don't come out of a packet.

This is my card using the Bugaboo image 'Violet Can' from the Flower Water Cans range:

We are sponsored by Bugaboo this week

and the prize is 7 digital images

I decided to make a shaped card this time and used papers from the Bearly Mine Designs - Simply Dots collection.  I coloured the image with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers, cut it out using a Spellbinders Large Octagon die and layered everything onto Core'dinations card stock.  I made my larger flowers and leaves using Marianne CreaTables LR0132 and the smaller ones are a punch I have had in my stash for ages that has no makers name on it, I topped them with small pearls.  The fence die is another Marianne CreaTables - LR0205, I love this die and use it all the time.

The sentiment is a LOTV tag with a Wild Rose Studio sentiment, the only other things I used are a couple of white buttons and some yellow twine.

This is the inside of my card:
