LIM ... THEME FLOWERS

Morning and happy Saturday 
First of all I would like to thank everyone for the welcoming and encouraging comments left 
on my own blog and Less is More following my DT announcement last week. 
You are an amazing set of blog buddies and it's much appreciated. 
I've had a fabulous week visiting all your blogs which are packed full of incredible inspiration.
I have also gained some new followers so thanks for joining you are most welcome.

So this week the theme is flowers and lilies are my all-time favourite flowers, which brings me onto my first card which uses a brand new MFT Die-Namics set of dies called 'lily'coloured with Promarkers. 
For the background, another newbie; an MFT chevron stencil used with distress inks.

Both of these products have been on my wish list since their release so I had a little spend at the weekend. 




The background panel has been die-cut using another MFT product (Pierced Rectangle Stax) and adhered to the card with 3D foam. I love this pierced rectangle set so you may see it popping up quite a bit ... the problem is I'd now like all of the MFT Pierced shape sets!

To finish I've added a 'Happy' die-cut sentiment, also coloured with Promarkers and a stamped birthday greeting; both from Clearly Besotted. Last but not least a little bow of hemp cord to tie the stems together.

It's another die-crazy card which is this week's theme at Simon Says Stamp so 
I'll be popping over there with this card.

For my second card I couldn't wait to try out the newly released Clearly Besotted products and this set is Bridal Bouquet. I've stamped different sizes of the flowers and foliage then die-cut some of the blooms and leaves, attached with 3D pads to add a little dimension. 




The 'Congratulations' sentiment is another word die from Clearly Besotted which is cut from some silver pearlised card. To finish off I've swept my clear Wink of Stella brush over the blooms 
and added pearls to their centres. 

I've used the colours from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge so 
I'm heading across there shortly.


Ok it's your turn now!
Thanks for stopping by and I am looking forward to visiting all your blogs again this week
 to see what you've come up with for this week's LIM challenge.
