Handmade Flowers.

It is week #40 over at City Crafter Challenge Blog and this week's challenge is to make your own handmade flowers,Kirsty is the host and has given us this very pretty inspiration photo called 'Flower Show in Jersey City'.


I love using Prima flowers but I get a real satisfaction when I make my own so I really enjoyed doing this week's challenge.


I used my December Pixie Dust kit for this LO and the dies I used to make the flowers are Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and Marianne Creatables.


I don't know if you can see well enough on the photo but I added lace and tulle to the large flower,it looks very pretty in real life especially with the touch of glitter. I also added a Mellisa Frances crown,a Prima swirl and a couple of Maya Road pins.
