Yellow sunflower

We got another bunch of snow today. I don't know how much but 10 - 15 cm would not surprice me. So I guess I needed to hide away inside playing with sunflowers and butterflies trying to fool myself into beliving that spring will come.

This card is for these challenges:

OSAAT#2 - Sketch
Kort O'mania #12 - Blonder/laces
PDCC #19 - Deep yellow, pale yellow and white

Some glue there that had not dried yet... sorry about that, I am a sloppy crafter..... I have colored my sunflower with watercolorpencils. Poped it onto some white paper sprayed with glimmermist and then I added some faux stiches around the egde. The sunflower image has two butterflies on it, but I found them so difficult to color that I punched out some butterflies in yellow and added some stickles to them. Gave it all some more dimentions right?

I have made my own flower. Pretty proud of that one. I found the tutorial for it over at the talented Saritas blog. I used some old curtains to make my flower. They did smell of basement and dust, so I gave them a good bath, so now they smell like flowers too ;o)

And I have used a charm as a centerpiece to my flower.

My punched out pine branches again. Added some stickles to them to, but it don't show in the picture. Some lace and some ribbon and a bow.

I am not only a sloppy crafter, but this week I have been a lacy one too. So now I am late for a bunch of challenges....

Thanks for stopping by. Have a very nice evening and take care!

Det var et supert og vårlig kort. Så flott den blomsten du har laget var. Det blir så mye mer spesielt når man har med noe selvprodusert. Kjempeflott. Tusen takk for at du deltar på utfordringen til Kort o Mania.
