Jenny's our host again this week over at A GEM OF A CHALLENGE.....she's set the theme of "Anything but square"....right up my,i love shaped cards!,so was a perfect challenge for me...square can get alittle boring don't you think!
I've never made a flower-pot card before....but had always wanted to have a go,this stamp i think works perfect with it.
I made the card using the tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers....but increased the sizes to suit my stamp.
The stamp is "Sunflower Sprinkles" from PINK GEM DESIGNS,coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's,and i've added some glamour dust to her wings.
I've also used two stamps from the new "Funky Flowers" set....the "Just for you" and the two butterflies which i've stamped onto the plain SU paper using Versafine "Vintage Sepia".
All the flowers have been punched using a Martha Stewart dimensional punch "Waterlilly"(large size),and with SU papers.
Self adhesive pearls and gems from stash,the ribbon is Anna Griffin.

The sentiment inside is by Inkadinkado from the "Expressions" set...and i've added a strip of the same SU paper i've used on the front of the pot....brings everything alltogether.
I've added a stand at the back of the pot so that it stands up.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:-
WILD ORCHID CHALLENGE(MON)....."Dieing to punch it out"
ABC CHALLENGE (Wed)......Q is for quote...sentiment inside.
DELICIOUS DOODLES(Fri).....3 dimensional project.
Well that's all for now...hope you'll all come and join us over at A GEM OF A CHALLENGE,and i look forward to seeing all your fab projects.
Have a lovely day
Take care
