Make your own Embellishments

Hello Everyone--I hope your day is going well and lovely to have you visit my blog today

 I have taken a few days to make some flowers for the challenge at The Craft-Room as I only just bought the Sizzix, Tim Holtz, Tattered Florals Die-I know everyone else has had it forever but I have to think about things lol.

I looked at few tutorials before venturing into making these and then used the ideas to do things my own way.

The 'leaves' are a 'JOY crafts' die and I bought a few of the crocheted doilies a while ago. The card I put through a Cuttlebug folder and distressed it with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink-Rusty Hinge which I love. I also made the bow but it took me several attempts even with my bow maker.:(

Great samples and entries for this challenge so do pop and have a look and join in with some of your own--always good to get ideas.

Love Chrissie xx
