Paper flowers to make me feel better...

Afternoon everyone, I'm not well! Spent the last few nights sneezing away and today have runny nose, sore throat and all the stuff that goes with it - have stocked up on painkillers and anti-inflammatories and i thought instead of feeling sorry for myself I will show you the cards i've made for the Craftwork Cards February Challenge.

The first two are twisted easel cards using paper flowers and the second two are Christmas cards also with paper flowers - i may be a wee bit addicted to making these beautiful blooms!! Most of these products can be found in the Craftwork Cards online shop.

This card is on 6" Square cardstock with an embossed frame from the Embossed Pad at CWC - i have coloured it with a Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Ink Pad and felt blending tool. The blooms and Pink papers are from the Floral Fusion pad and i've included a couple of birthday messages and card candi to finish. Here's a close up of the front:

The next card is a 21st birthday card also using 6" square card stock and another white embossed frame. The papers and blooms are from the Sugarplum paper pad with wine organze ribbon, messages and candi to finish. The '21' charm is from Odyssey Craft Supplies.

 Here's a close up of the front:

And a close up of the flowers - i just adore sitting making these - its so therapuetic! Some have been sprayed with silver Sparkle and Spray for added glitteryness and Card Candi coated with Star Dust Stickles... yes, a card isn't complete without glitter and candi!

I was going to stop there, but here are the two Christmas cards that i made last night!

These are both made with the Craftwork Cards CandyCane Glittered Pad and some red organza ribbon. The first card uses a tag cut using the 'George and Basic Shapes' Cricut Cartridge.

This second card has blooms made with the Very Merry Festive Flowers and the whole card coated in Gold Spray and Sparkle.

I will leave it there for today - I have loads more to share with you but must go and rest.... Or at least try as there are two hyper toddlers running about!
