Distressed flowers...

...it's been a while since I've made any flowers, so I got out my TH distress inks and here's what I created...

I followed a fab tutorial which you can see here.

I made these DL cards for this week's Passion for Papertrey challenge using my Blossom Nesties and distress inks in Dusty Concord, Broken China and Peeled Paint. The Papertrey stamps are from the "Turning a New Leaf" set.

The lovely bling flower centres are buttons by The Hobby House.

I even made a DL matching gift envelope as well.

As you can see I didn't extend the black band right across the middle of my cards...that way I could continue my stamping around the right hand side of the card.

Even though I made the flowers they were really quick and easy cards to create.

Right, I'm off to have my Sunday breakfast!! See you soon!

I really love your cards - esp how the ribbon doesn't extend over as you say, it's an unusual touch ! How do you make your flowers, may I ask ?
