My Time To Craft 'Get Krafty' Challenge

Good morning all and Happy Easter, I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend. 

It is time for a new challenge at My Time To Craft and Crafty Calendar Challenge and I decided to create one card to fit both. At My Time To Craft we would like to see you use 'Kraft' on your project and at Crafty Calendar Challenge we are 'Adding Sentiments'

For my card I used one of my old faithful Elisabeth Bell stamps called 'Willow Dressing Up', this is a retired image at the moment but it will hopefully be back soon now that Elisabeth has decided to produce the stamps herself. I teamed my image with papers from First Edition 'Isabelle' collection which I love for the krafty colours it has. A bit of lace, a few pearls and it was done.

Silhouette Challenge 'Use A File In A Completely Different Way' Challenge

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.
This month is  (Use a file in a completely different way than it was intended).

Do you ever look at a design you have brought and think 'I'm sure I could make something else with it' well that is exactly what we want you to do this month. 

I started with this cut file shown below and then ungrouped them and remove all except for the long narrow ornament on the right. I then rotated several copies of this and then simply arranged them to get my flower shape. I used the whole in the middle as a guide to line them up and then selected all and welded. A flower was made, I copied this several times and adjusted the size to get my layers.

Here is my card I made with that flower:-
6" Square Scalloped Card Blank - Natalie & Amy's
Card Stock - Bazzill
Die Cut - 
Inks - Ranger Distress Ink
Button & Gem - Stast
Twine - Echo Park
