Flowery Challenges

Hello Friends
Well I intended to have loads of cards made this week 
but instead I've been sorting my stash and wondering how I've 
managed to accumulate so much trash over the years! 

Anyway 2 yummy challenges, with cakes, this week and I don't often get
around to entering them but couldn't resist the photo inspirations this time.

First up is for the latest Fusion Challenge and I love the 2 tier type cake in the photo
 so decided to go with a 'divide / tier' to my card!

Card Recipe:
Cheery Lynn: Daisy Trio dies
Clearly Besotted: With a Flourish & Sweet Little Sentiments
both heat embossed with WOW silver sparkle
Still on the 'metal' theme from Less is More so used a couple of brads
to hold the flowers in place plus some Doodlebug sprinkles and gems for some added sparkle.

Here's the photo inspiration and I'd also like to head over to the
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where it's 'Anything Goes'


I'm heading over to The Card Concept with this one ... it's another challenge I often
neglect / run out of time to enter BUT this week my blog buddie Sandie (London Days
has joined the team so had to join in to wish her well ... not that she needs it!

I was inspired by the bottle of milk and drinking straws but added
a flower head (using the cake sponge colour) instead of a cupcake.
I think my card falls into the Clean and Simple category or perhaps Clean and layered. 

Card Recipe:
Clear Besotted: Sweet Rose stamps, dies and sentiments
My Favourite Things: On the Diagonal stencil
Doodlebug sprinkles and gems to accent.

That's all for today and I'm off to catch up on some commenting
now as I've been neglecting that task these last few days too!
Thanks for calling in and see you soon.
