 Hello everyone,

Time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON   where Imke is our fabulous hostess this week with the theme...PATTERNED OR PLAIN PAPERS..

Mmmmm..because I bought a new paper pad  I went with patterned papers as I really don't have a huge amount of papers and usually make my own backgrounds, but these are soooo yummy..

And I will excuse you if you say, I've seen this card before, you haven't, but it is very similar to one I posted a wee while ago, I made two at the time and this one became a DT..slightly differnt, but the flowers were, are the same.

This was die cutting and colouring day..

These centers came out rich and really lovely..

Silly skinny flower stem..but this time I use a slightly thicker cardstock
 and it cut and coloured better..

Need seeds, lots of seeds.

Started to add seeds but moved on and around while they dried, you know I will put my 
fingers in them if I keep doing it.

so I added the fences carefully, they were leftovers..

They had foam dots behind them for some lift.

This is a Simon says stamp set and matching dies..cuts nice and close.

seeds are dry and the gaps filled in with more seeds..

And on they went..done.

Pop over and join in with us..

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..
