Flowers...

For the Crafty Boots challenge this fortnight Kerry has asked us to use flowers. This week marks her daughter's birthday and the flowers were chosen in memory of Rhianna Lily. I chose to make a simple ATC. The technique is one I have used many times before (and probably with the same paint colour as it is my favourite!). I took a piece of kraft card, painted it, dried it and then rubbed Treasure Gold over the top. Then I sanded the card to reveal the paint beneath. Half of the card I cut into an ATC and the other I die cut a heart shape. 
The flower is an old favourite of mine to use and a little more Treasure Gold highlights the petals. The leaves are one of my most used Wendy Vecchi stamps but are mighty fiddly to cut out! I hope you'll join in with us this time, we'd love to see your flowers!
