Word play weekend challenge #1

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I am very excited to share with you that I decided to host a "word play weekend challenge" right here on my blog every weekend.

What is the word play challenge, you may ask.

I will pick a word, and that word has to be present in your design either in part of your image, or as an embellishment or even just as part of your sentiment.

---------------------------------

Challenge #1

Flowers


I chose a super easy one for the first challenge. So all you have to do is make a card with flowers in it, either part of your image or as embellishments.

Please note this challenge is just for fun. I will however feature my favorite design(s) from each challenge with the following challenge.

Here is my card for this challenge.



Image is by Wee Stamps.
Colored with Derwent Coloursoft pencils and baby oil.
Papers are from my stash.
Tools and embellishments: MS and SU punches, janome mini sewing machine, ribbon, brads, glitter.

I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop. The challenge at Daring Cardmakers is Hawthorn or Lily of the valley flowers. Other challenges that my card fits: Catch The Bug (anything goes), Crazy 4 Challenges (lots of flowers), Secret Crafter (use your stash - all papers are from stash), Bloggers Challenge (Nature), Floweret (spring and green), Wags 'n Whiskers (use a die/punch).

I really hope you'll share your creations with me! All you have to do is make a card following the week's word, and then link it with inklinkz below.

Enjoy your weekend!
