CROCHET FLOWER



Good morning
I've been learning how to crochet flowers! It's amazing what you can learn on You Tube! I found this great site that has all sorts of wonderful tutorials and ideas its called Little Birdie Secrets.
There is a little story behind this card I originally made it for this weeks Cuttlebugspot Challenge but I totally got the wrong week! I seem to be having one of those weeks, hmmm I put it down to my age lol I will be turning 50 this year!
Anyway I've been crocheting lots of these little flowers so I thought I would male this card
It's 5x7" and embossed with a CB folder from the Oh My Crafts exclusive shapes bundle folder. I cut a green 'stem' and embossed with Swiss Dots CB folder. I handcut the leaves paper is from Patty Picklicious CD and added my pink crochet flower and a dotty button . The Happy Birthday is compute generated. Lot's of white space on this card but I liked it left simple and you'll probably be seeing more of these little flowers on my cards as I can't stop making them lol!

Wow I just love these little flowers, they add so much to a card. Love the design, the white space is great. The link you put for Little Birdies Secret doesn't seem to be working.

Oh Julie! This is fabulous my friend! I love the clean elegance about it, and that background folder is too die for. You did an amazing job on the crocheting of the flower, I'm so loving this, as I do all of your wonderful creations. How fun is this to change up from the norm every once in a while. Keep crocheting, I'm thinking of buying some of your flowers if you are selling them. Miss ya!

Hugz, xx
