Flowers for the Pink Petticoat challenge

I have had great fun making flowers for the challenge on http://www.pinkpetticoat.co.uk/ I think it's a great idea to make your own flowers from scraps of paper because I ( like all other crafters ) just find it impossible to throw any bits of patterned paper away.


These are my creations so far.......



I made these ones by using some flower templates I already had and the papers are from the Sweet Sundaes kit, pinned them altogether with brads and added a bit of glitter to make them extra girly, I thought I may have overdone the glitter then realised there is no such thing as too much glitter!!!




These ones were made using a petal template I found online, I used the Lola's Boudoir papers in Pretty Pink with a gromlet and gem in the middle. I had been looking at the Lola's Boudoir and Rainbow collection for ages then to my delight they were put into the retiring items section at a great price, it took me all of 2 seconds to convince myself I needed them and I am so pleased I did get them.



I will probably be adding more flowers as I am off work for 2 weeks due to an operation on my foot so I am going to have plenty time on my hands.
Hope you like my creations, please leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by. I am very new to blogging so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Wendy
