Fashionable Handmade Flowers!

Hi Folks,

The challenge this fortnight at Fashionable Stamping  is Floral or Handmade Flowers or both - the choice is yours!
For my card I have used Stampendous Rose Corset, coloured with Distress Inks, the backing border is my new TH Embossing folder , distressed with Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans. The webbing is also coloured with Faded Jeans.  The  floral paper is Papermania Blueberry Hill.
For my flowers I used Cor'dinations and the TH Tattered Floral die. a little bit of sanding and some glossy accents.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous 'floral creations' on show, so please pop over to FSC and take a look.  Remember though, we are a stamping challenge and need to see at least one real stamp on your entry.

I hope you are all enjoying the Bank Holiday - its the last one until Christmas!!

This is a scheduled post as we are 'hopefully - weather permitting' enjoying a few days away. 

I am entering this i:
  Catered Crop - Distress
  Challenges4Everybody - Anything Goes
  Come and Get It - 3D flowers
  Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes
  Stampin for the Weekend - Pearls and Swirls

Thanks for looking

Avril xx
