Flower power over at Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

Oh no, this is the last week our GD Amanda is with us - I'm gonna miss her lovely creations for Ladybug Crafts Ink!  As it's her final week with us, she has challenged us to make our own flowers for Totally Ladybug Tuesday!  I nearly cheated and made my flowers with my rolled rose dies, but decided to actually have a go at this!  Here is my DT card...

 
 

I made my flowers out of felt by simply cutting out circles and then chopping into them to make the petals - simple!  I bought the blue and lilac felt from Ladybug Crafts Ink here.  I love the soft look of the flower and knew it would go perfectly with my ever favourite dog, Buttercup!  This one is Curios Buttercup - ain't she sweet?!  The sweet sentiment is from the Magnum Sentiment set - love that font!

I also added a strip of gorgeous satin pleated ribbon - luscious!!!  You can buy it by the yard here and it comes in other gorgeous colours, like brown and pink.

The other gorgeous DT cards are here - go take a look to get some ideas!


I used this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch and I am also entering my card into the Paper Pretties challenge and Wags 'n Whiskers challenge both with the theme of "Spring" and Sassy Studios Design challenge for "bloomin' beautiful".

    


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock. DCWV Pocket Full of Posies paper stack
Stamps: Ladybug Crafts Ink Curios Buttercup, Magnum Sentiments set
Mediums: Copics
Accents: sage pleated ribbon (get here), button from stash
Tools: Fiskars border punch, Nestabilities label die inside card
