Pocket Full of Posies & Crafty Angels

Morning!! I hope you are all having a great Monday :) Today I have 2 cards to share with you.. 

First up is my DT card for Crafty Angels. Our theme this week is to use Red & Black on our projects. I really wasn't sure if I had ANY red papers but in my hunt through my paper stash I found some Basic Grey pads that contained reds.. phew!!

 The cute image is by Wild Rose Studios, and it was such a joy to colour. I used the sketch from Lili of the Valley, but not a LOTV image so I don't qualify for the prize *sulks*.  The lace is one I've had for about 2yrs. I got it when Rusty Pickle's Princess Pirate range came out and have been hoarding it ever since, lol, but as this is the year of the stash for a lot of people - as in you have to use what you have before you can buy more - I am delving into the stockpiles.
 I finished off my card by adding just a few black gems and some Wild Orchid flowers. 


Next up is my Pocket Full of Posies card. This week there is a sketch to follow

Remember you can flip, roatate or rescale the elements but we must be able to see the sketch and you must use flowers.

I am also entering into the Anyone for Anya? challenge which is a colour combo of Black, White & Pink. My card also happens to fit the challenge on the brand new Wild Orchid Challenge blog - Say it with Flowers.

My image is a limited edition 80's Anya. I've coloured her using copic markers and the used circle nesties to cut her out and to create the circle behind her. The pom pom trim is another from Rusty Pickle's Princess Pirate. The papers are called Tomboy Princess by Miss Elizabeth..... wonderful value at €1.65 for six sheets of 12x12's!!

The flowers are from Wild Orchid and again I've used black gems to finish off.

Thanks so much for popping by today. Please do visit my teamies to see their wonderful creations.
