Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #189 - Floral Profusion

Hello everyone and welcome!!  Hope you are all having a wonderful  day!

The new Challenge has gone live at Crafty Cardmakers!!
Jackie is hosting our Challenge this time and the theme is Floral Profusion!!
We would love to see your creations covered in flowers .. LOTS of flowers!!!
As always, anything you make is fine as long as it fits the theme.
Please read the rules and take note of our 15 Challenge limit.

Well, when I saw the theme for this Challenge my eyes lit up!!  Flowers!!  I love adding flowers!!! (thought I'd tell you that just in case you didn't realise.  LOL!!)
So, of course, I made a card (what else??)  with Maja papers  .. floral Maja papers (naturally!!).

Did a bit of stenciling with translucent texture paste (you can see it better a little further down) and then glued down a  piece of scrunched up gauze for more texture. 

Lots of flowers in the cluster and I also added some gem sprays and a berry.

Added some pretty lace along the side .. another of my fave things to do.

Had to add prills, of course ..

.. mixed with silver micro beads and, if you look closely, you can just see the stenciling.

The leaves were cut with a die from Cheery Lynn.

More Maja papers on the inside ..


For lots of inspiration, pop on over to the Crafty Cardmakers blog and take a look at the gorgeous creations by my Teamies!!
