Say it with Flowers

Good morning friends!

I can't believe it's Team A's turn on the challenge this week at The Crafty Pad - now, who pinched the last fortnight? Anyway, Tina has chosen our topic this time and she has chosen Floral.

This week's sponsor is the lovely team at Joanna Sheen who are offering a £10 gift voucher to their wonderful craft store for our lucky winner.

As usual, the Design Team are showcasing the delightful images that have come from the pen of Debbie at Crafty Pad Designs, and here is my card for your inspiration:

My card recipe is as follows:
  • Base Card - 300gsm Centura Pearl in Dark Chocolate, cut, scored and folded to make a 15cm square card
  • Design Papers - are both by Paulette from Create with TLC and I chose them because of the flowers on them, especially the big daisies on the brown paper! The purple "quilted" DP is called Royal Smile Paper 6 and the brown DP is called WYWH Paper 31. I think both of these were freebies from Paulette's blog - she really is very generous and make sure you head over to her blog as she and her very talented DT are having a blog hop today, and they are promising loads of goodies ... and who doesn't like a goodie?
  • Image - this little cutie is called Hedgehog Harry in a Circle of Flowers, and he's just perfect for today's challenge don't you think? He's been drawn by the talented Debbie at Crafty Pad Designs. To bring this Harry to life I used my Spectrum Noir Pens in the following colours:
    • Hedgehog Harry - GB8, TN5, TN7
    • Flowers - TN7, PL2, PL4
    • Outline - IG1
    • Frame - DG2
    • Background - Chalks in Tan & Light Grey

I have deliberately left this card sentiment-free as I'm not sure what I'll use it for. It would do equally well as a Birthday card or a Thinking of You card.

Do head over to The Crafty Pad and see the gorgeous creations by the rest of Team A. Then come back and show us your Floral creations! You've got until 8pm (BST) on Saturday 6th October 2012 to link your cards up.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I hope you have a great Sunday!

Hugs, Helen x
