My Time to Craft - "G is for. . ."

Morning everyone, Tuesday once again, my goodness how time is flying at the moment, I can barely keep up with the pace!!

Any hooo, Tuesday means a new challenge at My Time to Craft . . . this week's theme is "G is for . . . "

Now you would have thought that this would be nice and easy but somehow I made hard work of it, starting and discarding a few cards along the way.  I'm sure that it was just a little card-maker's block  : 0 )

Well . . . my link is quite tenuous, but I'm sticking to it . . . G is for . . . Goodnight!!!  Weak I know but it was such a lovely little image of Teddy Bea I had to use it and I had already coloured her a little while ago, so that settled it, lol!!!

The card is made on 8" x 8" white cardstock.

I matted a piece of Kanban card as a base, I glittered this with Glamour Dust.

I used a MS Punch around the Page set "Cherish" to shape the top layers in lilac and green floral Kanban card.

I used a very thin silver peel off border around the lilac shape.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts (except the beaded florets).  

I used more Glamour Dust to bling up the lilac and cream roses.

The foliage was punched out using a Nellie Snellen punch.

The arrangement was finished off with a couple of purple pearlised pins.

[This is a scheduled post so hopefully I will be back to enter some challenges later]

Oh, before I forget, there's a Teddy Bea sale on until 21st August, I've treated myself to a few, so expect Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea to become quite a feature from here on in, lol.

Thanks for visiting,

This is gorgeous. That flower arrangement is perfect! I have been looking for something to add glitter to flowers and was not happy with anything I've tried. I ran right over to Amazon and ordered some of that Glamour Dust. Beautiful work!
