A Quirky Flower Challenge!

It's that QuIrKy Time again! Well done everyone who entered the last challenge. Fabulous makes, so many different styles. But now on with the new Challenge, over at Quirky Craft's, which I'm sure was set by Deanne (boss lady!) they want to see on your crafty makes...

See! I told you it was easy!! I've seen some really fabulous cards and other makes using flowers, so I can't wait to see what you all come up with!! And who doesn't love a flower or two or three!!
This is my DT card for the challenge. I've used five different Pink Petticoat papers, on the first card all with flowers, oh, except for one, which has a poem and a varitety of flowery papers on the cards below. Some of the papers have tiny little flowers, while others have great BIG ones!
This challenge is once again kindly sponsored by...

Crafty Ribbons

Pop over and see some of their lovely ribbons and fibers, perfect for adding to cards! AND!!! of course, be in with a chance of winning some!!
Back to my card...Tilda was stamped twice once onto card and once on to patterned paper and then coloured with Promakers and Copic pens, and cut out. Her dress, socks, bow and ribbons have all been paper pieced using tiny flowers made even smaller by printing the sheet out in a smaller size.
I'm thinking I might add this card to the challenge over on the Digi-shack. Not sure if Tilda will count though, but they are doing paper piecing this time round . I won a prize from there the other week so looking forward to using some of their images!! (Can't wait!!)
Right! I'm back! It's been a lovely day, couldn't miss all that lovely sunshine and...I needed some glue!! So, while I was walking the sea wall and then hunting down some glue at the (not very local) craft shop, I put this on the timer... and the wrong draft (with no pictures!) was published so, I hope the right one is showing now!!
I did a bit of 'playing' with this, because I wasn't very happy with the thickness of the scalloped card, so I thought I'd add it to another card and show you how one card can easily become four or more!!
I've added a sentiment too. The font is too cute coz it has flowers on it!! It's called Floralies 
I'm off now to hunt out some challenges. Don't forget to pop over to Quirky Crafts and see what all the other DT members have come up with! Looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing all your makes! Thank you for stopping by!
