Throw some flowers at it

 Morning all, again.  As it's the 15th of the month we have a new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly.  We would love to see a 'Floral Extravaganza' (yes, I did have to check how to spell it).  I bought a beautiful digistamp from Alex Syberia on Etsy.  It was perfect for this challenge.  I started colouring it in soft pinks and grey.  It was going to take me days to do with my wrist splints on.  Then I tipped a cup of tea all over it and I couldn't bring myself to try again.  Hopefully, when the splints are off I can have another go.  Instead I reached for the huge box of floral embellishments that hardly ever sees the light of day.

As you can probably tell, I put a panel on a card front and basically threw some flowers at it.  I did add a few pearls on stems that were also in the floral box.  Oh well, it's a bit more stash used up I suppose.

Please pop over and join in the fun.  I'm sure you all have some floral extravagance in you somewhere.

Thanks for reading.

  1. A pretty card Dawn, lovely flowers - it must be rather difficult to do things with splints on, I hope they work and you don't have to keep them on for long.

  2. Hope you don't need the splints for much longer Dawn,a great floral card

  3. Its gorgeous. You do get the hang off, or at least find ways to adjust to using splints but hopefully you won't need them on for too long. Healing hugs Emmax

  4. Splendidly pretty floral greeting! I'm deeply sorry your health is negatively impacting your ability to craft. As a long-time multi-chronic illness fighter, I know firsthand what that is like as well and how much of a toll it can take on our psyches at times. Please know that my understanding and deepest wishes for better days on the medical front ahead are with you, Dawn.
