Fireworks/Bright Colours challenge

Over in Kerrie's Kraft Korner there's been a challenge with the above theme.  I entered with the following card.  I dusted a pre embossed card with TH Black Soot distress ink, then added a pink frame, which had been hanging around for ages (I knew I'd find a use for it at some point !), then I used a knitted flower (sent to me by Mo Harvey in a swap) as a centrepiece and added an assortment of little punched out flowers around the edge.  I used a couple of flower pins and gems, with a black peel off sentiment to finish.  In a way it's a card made using scraps, as the pink frame was a scrap left over after punching out a shape and the flowers are punched out from scraps of card.


Gilding flakes

I entered a challenge recently where you had to use your favourite things.  Well, I like gilding flakes, but don't use them as often as I should so I had a go and used them with the Pom Pom snowflakes stamps by Phill Martin, but I made them into flowers.  I used Creata paper and paper ribbons and gems, and am pleased to say I won a stamp for my efforts !  Here's the card.
