Just Magnolia - Handmade Flowers

This week the Just Magnolia Challenge incorporates the Special Monthly Challenge, which has been moved back to the main Just Magnolia blog (I like things simple remember lol). Michele Roos did a fabulous tutorial on handmade flowers so our challenge this week is to make your own flowers. The tutorial is for reference so if you don't have the same equipment then use what you have. None of the DT had the die that Michele used so we punched, die cut, hand cut, you name it to make our handmade flowers.

The prize is a special one - Simon Says Stamp is giving a $50 voucher to the lucky winner which will be drawn, as usual, by Random.org.magnolia-jm-flowers1
My card is a rushed one - I started off the week behind after all the prep I needed to do for Ally Pally and I have chased my tail all week. I am finally caught up now thank goodness and even managed to squeeze in some blog hopping tonight. I started off following Michele’s tutorial using punches then went off and did my own thing lol.magnolia-jm-flowers2
Recipe:
Stamp: Magnolia, sentiment is from
Craft Enthusiast
Papers: Bo Bunny Flutter Butter (love these colours together)
Tools: Cuttlebug Daisy embossing folder, McGill and Kurepunch punches, Martha Stewart Lattice Arch punch
Embellies: Prima say it with Crystals, pearl button





Thanks for stopping by,
