SEQUIN FLOWERS THE PLAY DATE CAFE


































Good morning
Happy Father's day to all the dad's out there today!
I was recently making this card and when bloghopping spotted that Julie's colour challenge over at The Play Date Cafe this week was the exact same colours I was working with so I am entering it into the challenge, I've never been brave enouigh to date, have you seen the creativeness over there wow!!
Anyway the reason for this card was to send out to Crafty Sue who recently won my little blog candy which included  some stringed sequins and of course I had to buy myself some and decided to create the little flowers in the same way the ribbon flowers I have been seeing have been made by just twirling round and round til you are happy with the size you need!
The card is approx 6x4" black card base. The paper is printed on card from Pink Petticoat Lola's Boudoir CD . I cut the stems by hand and added a black bow to finish off. Sequins and ribbon are from Hobbycraft.
Have a great Sunday everyone I'm off to see my dad for Father's day then taking Connor and his friend Jack go-karting!!
