Creative moments # 141 - Two or more flowers

Good day

It is Wednesday and time for another challenge at Creative Moments. Since all the signs are there that spring is on it's way in the Northern Hemisphere our challenge is to add two or more flowers on your project. I just love poppies and it will always remind me of our time in Europe. The image is from My Stitch back in twine called Oz Poppy and I used designer paper from BoBunny's Serenade collection. The red & black is from my stash. I used a Martha Steward punch for the ribbon and the sentiment is a new die from Country Crafts.

I used the following challenges as inspiration:
Cheerful Sketches - April sketch
Cute Card Thursday #525 - Brads
Creative Knockouts #241 - Lots of LAyers
Allsorts Challenge Wk463 - Spring flowers or showers
Crafty Calender April - Buttons or bows

The Paper Shelter #335 - A Birthday Card

Pop by Creative Moments and come and join in the fun. We have 2 great sponsors.
Hope you have a lovely day!

First day of Spring #139 Creative Moments

Good day

It is time for another challenge over at Creative moments. Though it is always a anything goes challenge we also have a theme if you need a challenge and what better than First day of Spring!

Spring is associated with new life and growth but unfortunately we tend to forget about death that is part of the cycle. We received some sad news over the WE, so my spring project ended up in a sympathy card. My image is from Bugaboo called roses and butterflies. I really scratch through my bits and piece to put this project together with different dies to glue it together. Image coloured with Prisma pencils.

Challenges I took my inspiration from
Stella says sketch #606
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge 20 March - Shades of green
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday - Tic Tac Toe - Die cuts, free space, any shade of green
Use your stuff #304 - On the border
Sweet Stampin' - Use your scraps

Hope you'll come and join us in our lovely spring projects at Creative Moments.
Hugs from Africa!

Good day

It has been quite a while playing with one of my favourite artist's designs - Aurora Wings. I follow her on Facebook and am quite inspired by all her creations and the designers colouring the images. It is amazing and I just love the detail. I used Primrose Sprite today. I had to Google to see how a real primrose flower looks like and the soft colours looked so delicate. Though mine did not ended up as delicate. The designer paper is from Paper Flowers from First Edition. Die is from Spellbinder A2 Locking Loops and the swirl is from Marianne's design. I used the thread to add the beads and butterfly.

Challenges I took my inspiration from:
Aurora Wings #64 Bingo - Lace, Die, Thread
The Crafty Addicts #46 - Mother
Cute Card Thursday#520 - Mothers
Creative Knockouts #235 - Dies / punches
The Paper Shelter #329 - Let it be spring
Cheerful Sketches March

Thank you and have a fantastic day!
