Allsorts Challenge

First timer for me on this fab new Allsorts challenge blog... and this week the challenge is
"Curly Swirly"
Hmmm... what to do I wondered & the above is the end result...
Took some DCWV card through the cuttlebug & cut into strips after sanding. Next up cut some white circles & edged in gold using a Calligraphy pen & adhered these to the card. Again using some DCWV card run through the cuttlebug & then put through with a Sizzix die to create the flowers which were mounted using silicone. Some buttons were used for the flower centres & some little gems to finish the whole thing off.
Hopefully now that I've managed to join in I'll be a regular every week...
Right well time to get my bum out in the sun again... it's a hard life isn't it.. lol
See you all again soon & hope you have a fun filled day.
Happy crafting
