Flower Power ... and some ribbon please!

Morrrrrrrrrrrrrrrninggggggggggggggg Peeps! Can you believe 2 weeks have gone by since our Colour Wheel Challenge/??? I know I say this all the time but holy doodle the weeks are flying by.

Thanks to everyone who entered our last challenge...your entries were fabulicious and if you want to see if you're a winner make sure you check here.

This weeks challenge has been brought to you by Lovely Ladybug Diane...I hope you've got your ribbon and flowers at the ready because you'll need them :-D

I made this card for Ryan's girlfriend Kat who celebrated her birthday while they were on holiday in Thailand. They got back yesterday and look fabtastic with their tans. 

I've used Float Away Billie and as usual colored her with my Copics. It's the first time I've colored Billie grey and I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I really like it :-D I decided to cut her out and make a little scene with a diecut cloud in the background so she really does look like she's floating away lol. 

I cut an oval in the center of a piece of kraft card stock then embossed it with a birthday embossing folder. After sticking a piece of lilac cardstock to the main card blank I taped a piece of ribbon around the embossed piece and centered onto the card blank with foam pads. I added a die cut cloud then Float Away Billie with foam pads. 

I added Glossy Accents to the balloons one at a time, liberally sprinkling with glitter before moving onto the next one. This makes the balloons look separate from the bunch instead of one blob.

I love using burlap (hessian) to make flowers...especially with kraft cardstock. I added a button and twine to the center.

A peek at the inside.

Apart from Ryan coming home we have another house guest...there are arms and legs poking out of all the windows at the moment!!! For some reason Amber (16) wanted to come and stay with us after her exams. I'm sure it was to see Coen but I'll kid myself it was to see us too ;-D Amber sang at Nicole and Ben's wedding while the guests arrived at the church. She has an amazing voice and I'm hoping she'll give us an impromptu concert while she's here :-D

Did I mention Coen???? Here's the latest picture...sure to melt even the hardest of hearts ;-D He is 4 weeks old tomorrow...he'll be going to school before we know it! 

I think we're going to Troon today...don't tell Ruby and Rocky as they're in Doggy Daycare and won't be too happy!!

Catch ya later x
