Moving Along With The Times (DT Card) - 'Blooming Marvellous' Challenge

Hi all, I can't believe it's Thursday again already and so time for another Challenge over at

This week the lovely Lisa is our hostess and she has chosen the fab theme of ....

'Blooming Marvellous'

So we want to see anything with flowers! it doesn't have to be a card, it could be a gift box, bookmark, tag or altered item etc, as long as you follow the 'flowers' theme. Lots of scope for this challenge with Valentines, Mother's Day and Easter all coming up!! I am really looking forward to seeing all your creations - all those flowers are gonna look fab!!

For my card I have chosen another Mo Manning image called Baby Fairy Yuriko. Isn't she gorgeous!! The paper is 'Vintage Rose' and Sentiment is from 'Tiny Sweetheart' Set, both from Pink Petticoat. I thought I'd make this a Valentines Card for my Daughter!

The Ribbon is from Stash and buckle was made with Memory Box Die - 'Simple Buckles' and I've coloured the Buckle with Metallic Silver Pen. The gorgeous Roses and Rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The delish Lily-type flowers are from Bunny Zoe's

I have Stickled Yuriko's wings and all the flowers with Star Dust.  The little purple 'Hero Arts' gems are from MCH and are perfect size for putting in the corner of images. Really easy to apply also as they come in a strip!

Colouring is with Copics and Flexmarkers.

We are very pleased this week to be sponsored by the fabulous

                                       Bunny Zoe Crafts

who are very kindly offering the winner a £10 Voucher to spend in store.

Bunny Zoe's has some fab new products in Store. I have just had a peek and there are some gorgeous new papers, Stamps, Spectrum Noirs and much more. The new Tickled Pink, Whimsy and Bildmalarna Stamps look So fab! So why not hop on over and take a look..... Bunny Zoe's New Arrivals.

Hope you like my card! and don't forget to pop over to MAWTT for more details of the Challenge and to check out the rest of the Team's creations - and Wow they are all 'Blooming Gorgeous' this week!!

I'm scheduling this Wednesday night and I can hear the rain outside yet again!!! At least it is the perfect excuse to stay inside warm and cosy! and craft!!

I've suddenly noticed that I'm going through a very 'purple' phase and I keep using it over and over!! I will have to try and use some different colour combos LOL - don't want you to get bored with my cards! although I do love Purple!! :-))
