Flower Fun to Die For.......

Morning all.
A bit of a bonus post for you this sunny Sunday (yes....I said sunny!!!!!!!!!) Sydney finally has a golden orb in the sky for a change with some heat behind it....woo hoo!!!

This week at Our Creative Corner they have a "Best Friend" theme going. You have to create a card, 3D project etc to let a best friend know that you are thinking of them. It also HAS to contain a flower!! Now my Bestie's birthday is not for another month, but I have many WONDERFUL friends that have birthday's in the nest week or so. Well with this in mind, I had an idea or 2 bouncing around my brain.

I also received an order of My Favourite Things dies that I had been very patiently waiting for and was BUSTING to try them out. This is what I came up with.....

Now this card is VERY out of the ordinary for me. I do not do square cards that often, it has a lot of pink in it...another not to frequent occurrence and i also managed to tie my first double bow!!!

The MFT Dizzy Doily and Fancy Flourish dies are so intricate. I loved working with them. I think they are definitely gunna get a massive work out.I used a Bow Easy to tie my double bow.

I cut out all the flowers and the dimensionals really got a workout here, but the flourish/garland was so pretty......

Thanks for popping by again. I may even have another card or two for this challenge....but I will think about it for a bit. Thanks also to Michelle at The Stamp Spot for the MFT dies.

Addit......since posting this and sending a link to Michelle, I have now also entered it in The Stamp Spot Sketch challenge for February.
