Belles & Whistle First Challenge

Belles and Whistles has started sponsering challenges on their blog. You can check it out here. Well lucky for me, my first Belles and Whistles stamps arrived last week. I just love Elisabeth Bell's designs. The challenge this week was to create your own flowers. I found a tutorial on YouTube that shows how to use the Tim Holtz grunge flowers technique using your Cricut to cut the flowers. I used plain white paper and inked the edges a soft pink and sprayed them with some homemade glimmer mist. I was really pleased how they turned out. The sentiment was stamped onto a ticket I downloaded from The 80's Me. She has some really great freebies on her site. I love the sheet music paper I've been seeing on a lot cards lately and found this free download at Carol Annes Boutique. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Materials Used:
Image - Belles & Whistles Tea Time
Cardstock - DCWV Linens-n-Things
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Spun Sugar for flowers, Bundled Sage for paper edges
Paper Leaves - Quickutz 2x2 die
