 Hello everyone,

A new challenge starts today over at LITTLE RED WAGON  andI'm the hostess this week with a new challenge..."GETTING WARMER"- USE WARM COLOURS

I know, you would  think I would say, use Sunshine colours but I'm zooming into Winter and warm got stuck in my head..

So for my project I made my own colours with inks etc and made flowers...

I also had a few leftovers which I brought in, they are a different warm colour and the butterflies too, they just matched so it had to be..

I made a box and had card bases and matts ready..

Very old scrapbooks papers, I cut all mine in half not long ago, no reason for it really..

My beautiful orange daisies..

Setting it all up..

and starting the gluing process, and started using cardboard again for the dimension behind the flowers, there is so much of it floating around my room and it gives great dimension.

Card and box..done.

I think I have made this flower in nearly every colour there is..

The box with a simple die cut "Just For You"

What can I say??

So do come and join us HERE  with your warm colours..

Thank you so much for stopping by..Ill see you later on..

LOL! Thanks for the warning when I visit your home. Don't get up for any reason at all! LOL Isn't it cute the way kitties enjoy being where we were? I think it is because it's all "warmed up" LOL

Your floral creation is magnificently put together, and so beautifully detailed! I admire how much you accomplish, and long for the days when energy was normal. Thanks for sharing your masterpiece and box!
