Fabulous Flowers at Fab 'n' Funky

Good morning, hope your week is going well. It's time for a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky, and a lovely one it is too! Hosted this week by our talented (and very busy!!) Wends who has picked the theme of 'Fabulous Flowers', of course flowery images and papers are acceptable but what she really wants to see are 'real' flowers...paper or fabric. This is the card I made for my granddaughters birthday, it's on Friday, only 2 more sleeps!!, and she'll be 7...excitement and anticipation has now reached fever pitch!
I chose this sweet Mo Manning image because it looks like Ruby with her long blond curls, also she loves 'girly dresses' and dressing up, I've used copics to colour and her dress is paper pieced. Papers and sentiment LOTV. I've added a couple of die cuts, afew pearls, a pretty organza ribbon and of course the flowers!  For more inspiration and to add your own floral creation please click here.
Our lovely Sponsor this week is Live and Love Crafts, sadly they are shutting up shop so a great opportunity to win some lovely stash before they're gone forever!
Thanks for visiting!
