New Creata Challenge --- These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things!

Hiya, sorry I have been missing in action for a couple or so weeks, my Father-in-law hasn't been well and is still in hospital, it has been a very worrying time for us all. He is getting there, but not out of the woods yet!

So on to my first blog for a while...we have a new challenge started over at Creata Challenge. Our theme this fortnight is ---- Favourite Things. Our rule is to use at least 1 Creata product other than mirror card!! This is my inspiration for you.....
My Sample
Creata products used :
Flower stamp
12x12 double sided backing card
Backing paper card
Mirror card
Joycraft flourish die

Close Ups

I based my card around my favourite rose stamp which I coloured in using Promarkers Rose pink, Cerise, Pear green and Moss. I topped this on to lovely pink mirror card. I used an 8x8 white card blank and for my background, I used 2 co-ordinating 12x12 double sided card which I also love along with my favourite crochet lace ribbon. I added the bird and butterfly toppers from the same 12x12 card pad for dimension. To finish off I used the same pink mirror card die cut with Joycraft flourish die, added Joycraft die cut Creata backing paper flowers along with crochet flowers, resin flowers, brads and gems from my stash...
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by
