Belles N Whistles Flower Fun!

I am so excited today! To begin with, I get to share with you my first card as a DT member for Belles N Whistles! I love these stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell and am just tickled pink to have been named as a member of their awesome team! The other excited news is that we are now holding a Belles N Whistles Challenge every other week - and it starts today. Our inaugural challenge is DIY flowers. Don't you just love it?

For my card, I used the Watering image. This cute stamp is from the spring collection. I made my flowers using a Spellbinders flower die and grungeboard. I was really going for a polka-dotted yellow, but they turned out more like wild leopard flowers, but hey, they're fun! If you would like to play along, just make sure to use a BnW stamp and make any kind of flower for your project. Then be sure to upload your picture to the challenge folder in our gallery. If you need some inspiration, be sure to check out all of the wonderful creations from my team members - These ladies really know how to rock a challenge!
