Reminder: The Flower Challenge - May

Hi there everyone, I'm popping in with a quick reminder about the current challenge at The Flower Challenge.

For this months theme we are wanting you to chose a card created by the Design Team and be inspired to create your own version of the card. And still with 10 days to go till the challenge closes, you could even do more than one!!

 My reminder card is actually the one I created for my Mum for Mother's Day (which is today in New Zealand). She absolutely loved it which totally made my day:

I love colour against lots of white, it really pops and makes the white area's look so crisp!!

I started by stamping the flowers on white CS and colouring with my Faber Castell pencils. After fussy cutting them out, I adhered them to the card front, popping the smaller pink flower up on foam tape. The 'hugs' word was die-cut from white CS and popped up on lots of tiny pieces of foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of black CS and put on foam tape, along with the tiniest blue flower. And of course I had to add some co-ordinating sequins for a bit of bling!!

The flowers are from My Favourite Things 'Fancy Flowers' as well as the 'hugs' die. The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter 'The Big, the Bold and the Happy' and the sequins from Neat and Tangled.

I have two challenges I would like to enter:
