Anything Goes Challenge #78 - Make Your Own Embellishments

Hello fellow Bloggers its time for another challenge over at Anything Goes which is Make Your Own Embellishments.

I seem to be drawn to 8x8 size cards at the moment - perhaps because recently they have all been family cards and this is one I made for my daughter in laws birthday. Apologies for the quality of the photo but the light was poor and  I am not the world's best photographer! Also, to be honest, I took the photo in a hurry because I was on the last minute for her birthday!

This is a favourite Stampendous stamp which has been coloured with Promarkers and cut with a labels 20 spellbinders die. The floral backing cards are from Kanban which I bought when I was at the Craft Den's birthday bash. The flowers and pins are from Creative Expressions and the three lace leaves are from a strip of lacey leaves I bought at the Happy Stampers show a while ago. The wire twists were made by wrapping beading wire around a wooden kebab stick - an embellishment I use a lot with flowers.

A relatively simple card but I think appropriate given the busy floral backing card. Hope you like it.

I shall be entering this into the following challenges: Happy Birthday Anything Goes Anything Goes Always Anything Goes Your favourite Pink plus one Anything Goes Anything Goes Feature 3 Leaves
