A Spoon Full of Sugar -challenge 63

At A Spoon Full of Sugar this week we have the theme of 'Floral Fantasy' yes we would like to see floral on your creations, this could be papers, images, embellies etc.

No images for me today, sometimes I go through spells of not wanting to colour images and this was one of them. So I picked the largest bloom off of the mothers day dec. I have (no not one I was given, that would be cruel, spare ones from when step daughter got one for her mum! 3 for £1 and lots of flowers!!) and I used the bloom as my main feature, even keeping the original flower centre. I usually use buttons but thought this was too pretty, usually the centres are furry covered and come appart when you cut the back bit off to make it flat but this was a different style. I chose a spring card fold which I layered with a bright floral dp from the Dovecraft-retro florals pad, and heh presto card complete! We are sponsored by Belle's and Whistles and Summer has very kindly donated a Lil' Miss Poppy stamp designed by the wonderfully talented Elisabeth Bell, oh she really is a cutie!

We are joined by Fran as our guest designer, to see her fabulous card and the beautiful work from the rest of the dt pop along to the blog :0)
