Floral Delights !

Happy Saturday dear Readers, hope you are having a great weekend.

I'm a couple of days late sharing this project with you - it's a small batch of cards I created as my DT project for this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which started last Thursday.  The challenge theme this week is 'Floral Delights' and our prize sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.

I used Distress Stains in Faded Jeans, Antique Linen and Fired Brick and the 'splat' technique - using the tip on the DS to 'smash' the bottle onto the cardstock with enough force to create a splattering of colour.  

Using a set of circle Nesties I diecut a circle from white card and a slightly larger circle from red card.  I then stamped onto the white circle using a stamp from the SU! 'Flower Shop' set and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then added DS splats randomly over the circle.

I cut the white circle down the centre vertically and made horizontal cuts off-centre on each side to create an asymmetrical shape.  These pieces were then attached to the red circle, leaving a space between each piece to allow the red to show through.

Finally, I stamped another flower from the same stamp set using SU! Midnight Muse ink and scrap of white card, cut out the flower shape using the matching SU! punch and attached in the centre.  I then stamped the circular sentiment image using a stamp from a Hero Arts set and SU! Cherry Cobbler ink and punched out with a small scallop punch, again from SU!.  I attached this to the centre of the flower.

These card were created as Thank You cards as I needed a number of them to send to my lovely family and pals who spoiled me with so many fabulous Birthday gifts earlier this month.  Here are a couple of pics of my gifts - thank you all so much ! 

The 'eagle-eyed' amongst you will have spotted the Flower Shop stamp set and matching punch I used on today's cards.

Thanks for dropping by today, hope you enjoyed your visit.
