Me and my flowers!!!

Hello bloggers,

I am back again with another card... and I do like this one.

The roses were made by me (you did not have to guess that, lol!)
I just took plain mauve coloured construction paper and went over it with watery acrylic paint in silver to give it a shiny look before die cutting the flowers. 

The sentiment is a folder from Sizzix embossed with my Cuttlebug (love of my life, really!)
I did the scalloped border with my Martha Stewart border punch on metallic papers.
The sticker with leaves and pot is from my stash.
The sprigs are from a tree punch by Jeff.
The tea pot border punch is really cute - cannot recall it's name. I put a silver ribbon at the bottom of the punched out teapots to make it look glamorous.

Hope you like it. Would love to know what you think about it.

Am entering this in the following challenges: - die cuts (my roses are made out of mini Sizzix flower dies) - spring ( I hope my roses remind you of spring and so does the pot with green leaves - let's glitter and glitz it - die cut and punches (my roses and the teapot border punch at the bottom)

Hi Monica,
The roses had "Monica" written all over it. :) Sometime if we just look around we would fine plenty of supplies to make our crafts but we tend to want new things. I love this shade of purple.

Okay, Monica, this one is fantastic!! It even had my tom boy (Cowgirl) exclaiming 'How Cute!" She's one of my scrapping girls, some of her cards are on my blog, but we've wondered if she would ever do anything girly! She really likes this card, and so do I. Thanks!!
