Handmade flowers

Here is a card I recently finished. I just adore the little Madelynn image from The Greeting Farm. The gorgeous music sheet is from a stamp I purchased from Bec, called piano forte. The flowers I actually made myself, yes that's right, I made them...lol.. I found the tutorial for these little babies on Michele's blog (here). I have been following her for quite some time and she nearly always adds her own gorgeous handmade flowers to her creations. Well... she is such a wonderful lady, that she decided to share with us all on how she actually made them. Her tutorial (here) is super easy to follow. I changed it a little and actually scrunched my flowers before attaching them together with my brad. I have been practising and they are looking much nicer than the one's in these photos.

Here is a close up of the larger flower.

On a different note, Bec has a fantastic new Blog Candy over at Creatalicious Challenges. She has some gorgeous items up for grabs. Head on over for your chance to win this great stash.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my humble little blog. I love hearing from you all.

Take care xo Jackie
