Colour Block!

DSC03902

Hello everyone! I hope everyone’s doing great. I have a CAS card for you today based on the sketch at Skipping Stones Design.

           

DSC03899

The flower is handmade. It’s the same one I did a pictorial of at Yvonne’s blog.

This is so weird, everyone knows me as E.T. and Yvonne introduced me by my full name “Erum Tasneem”… I have got a couple of mails saying “We didn't know it was YOUR challenge, until we saw your picture”  LOL.Well now you know!

Tutorial for the flower is HERE. Just a day left to enter my “Ribbon Flower Challenge”.

I have another card based on the same sketch, just can’t  take a “right” picture… will try again tomorrow.

Happy crafting people.

xoxo

ETA for ICR challenge: This card is for a friend whose birthday is coming up. She has been feeling a bit down hence the “see the flowers smiling” sentiment.

Challenges: SSD92, Wee Memories, ICR, Incy Wincy Designs

Just beautiful as always!! I'm so in love with that flower. I did check out your tutorial (which is fabulous by the way) and will have to try another one now. I've tried before and just got a lot of sticky and glue-y fingers and not a very pretty flower! Now I'm going to try the way you did one! Wish me luck. If it even comes out half as pretty as yours I'll be satisfied.
