Flowery Flourish

Hi, I seem to be alternating a bit between flowers and butterflies in my cards.
I'll have to try and stretch my creativity a bit more!

I stamped and fussy cut these flowers ages ago at my sisters. The stamp belongs to her so it is maybe a Stampin Up one, not sure.

I've coloured it with inktense pencils so I'm visiting the challenge at
Inkspirational where the theme is to use pencils or markers.

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's an anything goes challenge.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge also has an anything goes challenge.

At Allsorts the challenge theme is to use your favourite things. Dies are one of my top favourites as are distress inks. I do have a long list though!

There's lots of fabulous DT inspiration on all of these challenges.

Materials used:
Stamp unknown; inktense pencils; MFT leaf filled flourish; distress inks; sentiment sticker.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
