DoCrafts April Friendship Swap / PBFC Challenge Card.

Homemade crochet Flowers!
Here's the card I've made which will do for two challenges, for the April friendship swap at DoCrafts and for my lovely friend Kaz who set our craft group's latest challenge. Kaz sent me: Embossed card, handmade paper, Japanese silk paper, Ribbon, Brad and a lovely Marabou feather. The challenge was to make your own flower/s for the card. I used the embossed card and over inked it with a Laura Ashley stamp in leaf green. I cut and embossed and inked the handmade paper behind the Laura Ashley paper panel cut with Labels 2 Nesties. The image is Maggie, from Sugar Nellie, coloured with Promarkers. I used the Japanese paper behind the flowers, inked and embossed it and the flowers I crocheted using some scraps of old wool. Alphabet letters cut on my new acquisition, the Quikcutz Squeeze (19.99 from Artymiss!) I would recommend it for ease of use - hope they're going to keep making the dies.
Hope you like it Jenny!
