The card that nearly killed me...

...no, really - can you imagine the heart-stopping-oh-my-god-I-need-to-remember-to-breathe reaction this weeks CCT challenge caused? Flowers? Do I have to?


For those who don't know, I have flower issues. I love them & have piles & piles of them in my crafty space - I adore the creations I see that are beautifully covered in them and stalk the Prima blog in a rather worrying way, but me put 'em on one of my cards? Nah, they just look weird...

So I kept it simple and used the same layout as I did on the Cuddle Up card a few days ago.
And d'ya know what?
I likes it!
Well apart from the flowers, they look kinda weird...

Hugs,

they look very pretty Leann and fabulous with your card. I have probs with blooms too, either I go overboard (like my CCT card!) or just plonk on a couple for the sake of it - maybe we should enrol at the Prima flower embellishment academy?!
