A Pocket Full of Posies - Our first challenge

Good morning!! It's the start of another week AND the start of a fantabulous new challenge blog!!

Introducing... A Pocket Full of Posies

I've been so excited about this blog and really wanted to shout it from the rooftops. The idea for was born from a conversation I was having with my co-conspirator Katie who is as nutty about flowers as I am.. and we decided that we NEEDED to have a blog dedicated to all things floral!!

And who better to sponsor the launch of a blog for the florally obsessed than 

Home to the most fantastic selection of flowers, pins, lace.. and much much more!!!

The prize on offer for this fortnight's challenge is this amazing selection of flowers

Delightful or what??!!! Makes me wish I could enter, lol.

As Wild Orchid Crafts were so generous with their prize I decided to go all out with their products.. never in my life have I used so many flowers on one project, lol.

I used MME Bella Bella on both the card and the MR tin.

The tin is my copic caio storage, lol... and now it's all prettied up!! As well as the Wild Orchid flowers I've added some lace, Prima bling and a Tim Holtz adage ticket.

For the card I used the sketch over on the Waltzing Mouse Challenge Blog. My image is a Lili Of the Valley stamp called Rosie Posy and she's been coloured using Copic markers. My Wild Orchid flowers have been inked and stickled to within an inch.... lol.

The gorgeous salmon coloured lace is an ebay find bargain, love it.. will be back for more :)

Thank you so much for visiting me today. I do hope you find some inspiration from my creations and join us in our first challenge.
