SUO Challenge #95 - Featuring Flowers

Seems a perfect topic for me!!



 Basic instructions from Stampin connection. My dimensions are slightly different- I simply cut a pice of A4 cardstock across its width at 31/2" and scored and 31/2, and 7 inches. The inside piece is 5 inches by 21/4. in this way you can get 2 flowers pots from one sheet of A4 paper and it will fit nicely in a C6 envelope.

The flower Pot card has been around for a long time but I wasn't yet a SU convert at the time it was very popular so I have really enjoyed making these today- they have been on my "to do " list for a while.
I have used Cajun Craze as my base card and where there didn't seem to be enough texture to the base I have stamped in versa mark using the Clockworks background stamp.
I used a variety of Ribbons/twine old and new and some retired buttons for decoration on the closure. To decorate the lip of the pot I have used a variety of embossing folders. For flowers I used a combination of Mixed Bunch, Petite Petals, and Morning Meadow with their corresponding punches.
The Little Leaves Sizzlit was invaluable for foliage in a mixture of Pear Pizzaz, Garden Green and Old Olive. All the butterflies have an extra layer of Diamond Glitter which is perfect for sparkle.
For the long sprays of little flowers I cut a strip of Gumball Green cardstock
and simply glued the flowers along the "stem".

As I always say - "a Girl can never have too many flowers"

Thanks for looking and thanks to the design team for their Inspirations, Cheers, Liz
