AYLI DT Inspiration #90

Hello everyone. Well, October is upon us as is a new challenge at


this time we would love to see your projects featuring your favourite flowers...
that is bought or die cut.

 Like many of you I have drawers full of bought flowers in various colours, shapes, sizes and types, however I tend to favour die cut flowers on my cards and projects. I think it is because you can use such a range of mediums to cut, in the case of this card foil and shimmery peal board.



I am not a massive fan of overly shimmery and shiny stuff but I was really pleased with how this one turned out, so much so that I made another one in a slightly different colour!!




Thank you for your visit and your continued support xx
