Default WT58 - Flower Power

I just love all the floral embellishments that seem to be all the rage... so this week, bring out all your pretty posies and have some fun! The challenge is to find ways to use floral embellishments such as Primas and "silk" flowers on your cards and make the gallery look bloomin' wonderful! Stamp lots of flowers too, but make sure you have an actual flower as well. If you don't have any, the dollar store is a great place to find some "silk" daisies.

Please remember to put WT58 in your keyword section and post a link back here. This is not a contest, a race and does not have a time limit. Make as many items as you wish for as long as you wish. Combine this with other challenges too if you want to. You can even link this with your VSN cards as well, so have fun.

Here is my card... (may still be pending)
Daisy Thank You
Happy Stamping,

Looks fun, but I don't think I have any silk flowers around. Gotta look.

Coooool! I just bought a bunch (way too many) of primas. Before I decided to spend the money, I just picked up a couple of floral sprays from Wally's, Mike's or LCS for $1 or less & pulled them apart. Some have at least 80 flowers on them.

I got some cute flowers at Rite Aid in the dollar section the other day, they have a bit of fluff inside of them and are bright colors, thought they would work for cards..good to know I can use them. Also got some ribbon, and silk roses in that section too, all kinds of scrapbook stuff there.

Uses for word window punch

Oh No! Flowers j/k.

I just took the line off my signature that said "make me stop using primas on everything I make". Not much of a challenge for me, but soooo fun! Thanks!

I got one done, then thought it needed more, so added the floral bg. I like it better with that.
