Mekeesha's flowery challenge

Well it hasn't been raining so there hasn't been much stamping, in fact I have looked at all my stamping stuff on the dining table and keep thinking that I need to tidy up and put everything away for a week or two and concentrate on some other hobbies. I know I have a cross stitch to do in the next couple of weeks, but I couldn't resist a challenge.

Makeesha's challenge this week is a picture of some fluffy flowers. And as per my usual style I have taken it quite literally and produced this... All I can say is thank goodness for the boho punch. The colours are from my scrap bag so not 100% sure on the colours but my guess for the flowers would be old olive, garden green, real red, tempting turquoise, brilliant blue stuck rather gingerly to very vanilla and old olive card with the base colour being chocolate chip.

The brads inside the flowers are from the bold brights brads collection and some black ones that I had.

The tag is from "a lot of thanks" stamp set on very vanilla set on tempting turquoise and real red.

The ribbon is chocolate chip and refused to be tied in a bow for the first five attempts but I won in the end.

I had some empty space so I decided to add some jumbo eyelets.

Sorry the photos are a bit out of focus, the light disappeared and it was bit difficult to avoid shadows.

So I am off to clean up the dining table. I have some days off coming up and it might all come out again but I just want to reclaim my home from my spreading stamping stuff.

Have a good week
