Papertake Weekly Challenge 24

Hi Folks....I am so excited and absolutely over the moon ...that I have been asked to be Guest Designer for the next 4 weeks over at Papertake Weekly..... I am very honoured...if a little nervous.... to join such a talented team including my lovely bloggy bud....Dawny P....but no going back now....
The challenge this week is

must admit I pondered over this one for an age
started off with a little faux stitching....pierced holes with a pricking tool
using these fab little gadgets that I got from my lovely Funky Hand Teamie En

guaranteed to give you nice evenly spaced holes and then ran over with a fine liner pen
then onto the fake flowers......cut individual tear drop shapes from this patterned paper
fixed with 3D foam pads to create daisies and finished off with these gorgeous dew drops
the other flowers were created using black self adhesive gems with a gold gem in the centre
cut thin strips of paper to create fake ribbon
Papers: MME Andrea Victoria Collection
Image: Hero Arts.....Scattered Leaves
Tim Holtz...Adage Tickets
Pink Petticoat..Tiny Typed Alphas
Dew Drops
Self Adhesive Gems

Well that's it for today folks and my first guest challenge done and dusted....just have to come up with the goodies for the next three....looking forward to seeing what you all create and will be popping by for a visit......catch up with you all tomorrow.....Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
