Tiddly Tuesday - Flowers

Good morning!  I can't believe two weeks have gone by already and it is time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks!  I feel like I only just wrote my post for the Mother's Day card challenge!

Our challenge theme for the next fortnight is Flowers!  We would like to see any kind of flower on your project...  paper, silk, flowers on your design paper or even a Tiddly Inks image with a flower in it.  Head over to the challenge blog to see what my fabulous teamies came up with!

I went shopping in Christy's bargain basement for my card this week and I found this adorable little fellow called Cavy Love.  I couldn't resist him... he's so cute!  The image is titled Cavy Love - For You, and guess what?  This little piggie has just been rescued from the basement and sent to live in the shop!  Yay!  You can read about it HERE.

The papers are from the Basic Grey What's Up 6x6 paper pad.  I cut the flowers using my slice machine and added Doodlebug buttons.  The ribbon and twine is from The Ribbon Girl.  The bling is from Prima and the sentiment is a sticker from SRM.  I added Stickles to the coloured flower.

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used;

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Anything Goes
Hooked on Craft Challenges: Flowers
Ooh La La Creations: Ribbon or Twine or both

Ooh and guess what?!  There's a new Wryn out today... just in time for summer!  Head on over to Christy's blog to check her out!  She's adorable (of course)!

See you later!
