Petal Lu Challenge #28

It's challenge time at Petal Lu, last one before the New Year!

I can't believe its Christmas already, just a few more days left, still lots of presents to wrap, not to mention cards to write and deliver and those last minute makes that the Children have insisted they now want for their teachers!!!  A lot of sleepless nights ahead of me.

So, lets swiftly move onto the latest Challenge at Petal Lu and my Design Team inspiration card.

I made this last Friday, very last minute, since I had completely forgotten to make it and my friend was coming to collect later that evening! whoops!

She loved it by the way!




Backing papers are from my Christmas Paper stock stash, sentiment is from Lily Of the Valley and wooden embellishments are from The Works (Aladin's gave).  Flowers of course are from Petal Lu.  These ones are the Blood Red, Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzaz colours. 

With the addition of string bead and coloured berries, bells and stamen, it all becomes very festive.

I also added some white glitter glue for more sparkle.
 
I hope you like what I have made, remember you can get all the blooms from Petal Lu.
 
Challenges, I am entering this into are

Petal Lu ~26

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful day.  I've been busy decorating for Christmas, and realised I was late posting my blog. Hope nobody notices!!!

It's Challenge time again at Petal Lu, as usual you could win the fantastic 30% discount from the Petal Lu Store.

 
Today I have used an image from Conie Fong Art & Design.  This beautiful image can come as a set of 3, with little differences in each.
She is called Molly Fairy

Petal Lu Challenge #21

Summer is coming to a quick close now, my trio go back to school on Monday! A quiet house during the day with less washing.  My biggest dread is the early morning alarm - uhh!

This fortnights challenge you could win 30% discount from the Petal Lu Store.
(picture shows, Daisies and Fuschia)

The image I have chosen to work with is a Saturated Canary one, called 'On the Edge', unfortunately you won't be able to get her for much longer, so if you like her, you must go visit her store quickly before it closes.
 
So, lets show you what I did!




 
A lovely shaped card using spellbinders large dies, memory box dies for the hearts, x-cut dollie die and la la land banner die.  Sentiment is from Lily of the Valley and words from my alphabet dies.

I don't remember which colours I used to colour her up (that's really naughty of me!) I'll put myself on the naughty step as soon as I'm done ;)
 
I find that card stock from PaperMill Direct matches my Petal Lu flowers very well, so I generally stick with that cardstock.
 



 The Petal Lu flowers used are Norland Blooms, Rose Red (original), Pretty in Pink (original) and a white Teddybear Bloom.
