Our First Belles and Whistles Challenge.......

It is official that today we are starting
a challenge just for the Belles and Whistles images.
And I got the privilege of picking the theme!!!!
I have decided to make it an easy one that
everyone can play along with!
Make your own flowers!
Easy peasy!! (I have used a cuttlebug die for mine!)

I just did like many of the tutorials out there tell you
punch 3 or 4 of each size and layer. I have turned my
petals down and sprayed them with glimmer mist
and touched the edges with distress paint.

I decided to use two different colors just to break
up the layers. I think it resembles a Zinnia.

I have went ahead and used this adorable image
called Kitty Love. This card is for my friends
daughter and they have two cats so I thought it
would work perfect! Also for the outside of the
card I used some newspaper print paper and
it was funny as part of it read "Whiskers"
so I thought that worked out fab!!

Well don't forget to stop and see the rest of the
DT's fabulous creations!! I can't wait to see
all your handmade flowers!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

(EDITED: Sorry I am so late with my card!!!
This computer is not right!! The post says
scheduled when I hit the button and then
when I come back from my vacation it
says Draft! It did it with all of them!!!)
