Crafty Catz #496- Optional twist- flowers

Good morning, hope you've all had a good week and a ready to enjoy the weekend. I'm hoping that the weather will let me get outdoors a bit- it rained so hard and so long yesterday that no-one (including the dog!) wanted to venture outside! There was quite a kerfuffle when we thought she needed 'a comfort break' involving pursuing her round the sofa and physically chucking her out the door- not too easy with a Great Dane!

The new challenge at Crafty Catz has the lovely optional theme of Flowers, chosen by our lovely Zora who is hosting this week. 
Our sponsor for this is the fabulous MORGAN'S ARTWORLD

To make my card I used the beautiful digi stamp Fantasy Fae Digi Stamp 48,  and spent a happy hour or so colouring her with my copics. I placed her inside layered apertures, cut once from dp- top layer, the underneath layer is cut from  distress-inked and stencilled card which is popped up on foam to add dimension. I fussy cut some flowers from the remains of the dp and tucked them between the layers along some die cut leaves. I added a few flowers and a stamped sentiment to finish.

Please hop on over to Crafty Catz to enjoy the beautiful creations form the team, then it's your turn to wow us with your own fabulous makes!
Thanks for visiting , have a lovely day!

Hi, Chris! You must have enjoyed every moment creating this beautiful project! The layered apertures are incredible, especially with the leaves and flowers. I especially like your choice of designer paper and ink. But let's face it, that incredibly-colored image is magnificent! The highlights in her lips and hair, the shading in the flowers, the softness of her expression - they all makes me feel like a beautiful secret is being told... to enjoy the simple beauties of nature, in her quietness, will reveal layer upon layer of the same beauty in our hearts and souls, and allow us to see Love everywhere! It's amazing, Chris. hugs, de
