All Tied Up

Hello and thanks for your visit today.
I don't know about you, but I love making flowers, but then when I make my card, I end up using smaller bought ones or the little paper clay roses and as I have a box full of die cuts and larger flowers, I have set myself a little challenge to use these up. I found a scrap of card the same colour as the flowers, so I've used it under the TH Mixed Media die cut. The  roses were shabbied up a bit with some Gesso and StarDust Stickles.  I've made a 'frame' with some string and added a little paper clay butterfly.  A little bit of stamping - and I'm 3 flowers less in the box!
My card is also a reminder that there's still 1 week left to join in with our Challenge at Try it on Tuesday, which this fortnight is 'In the Frame' - Hope you like my  'String'  frame.
I am entering this at:
  Crafting Musketeers - Anything Goes
Have a great week,
Avril xx

Lovely card Avril. Yes, I have lots of flowers that I've made in box for safe keeping and when I find a card that just needs a little something extra, I look in there just in case there's a perfect match. If there is, it's like winning the lottery lol :)

Love the colours of this one Avril! No crafting here at the moment - visitors for 10 days (2 birthdays & Tour de France) also wayyyyyy too hot to think about being indoors!
