Amazing what you can do with rubbish isn't it!? I was inspired by the following challenges 

Allsorts Week 204 - Anything but a card

These are what I started with, much to Hubby's amusement!


I am ashamed to say that the papers I used were another forgotten gem from a We Are Memory Keepers kit that I bought years ago. I chopped about an inch from the stain remover container to utilise a whole sheet of 12x12. A Martha Stewart punch provided the trim around the tops of the pots. I used MFT  Layered Roses dies for the flowers, and a couple of different small flourish dies. I had perfectly coloured card candi which I popped in the centre of the flowers and finished off with some tangerine gems that have been crying out to be used for yonks.


I am really rather chuffed and they look so pretty on my work room desk.

Have a lovely evening x
