Funky Fairy Challenge # 16

My goodness, a week has flown by already - I can't believe it ! I say that every week but it is true, "I can't believe where time goes" - I was originally going to say "I can't believe it" but didn't want you guys and girls to think I was a Victor Meldrew in the making . . . 'cos that definitely ain't the case!

Anyhow, I digress (again) and the theme this week over on the Funky Fairy challenge blog is "Flowers & Bling". I really struggled with this one because I really couldn't think of a way to get the 2 to work together - doh! Then I thought "bling filled flower" and that's what I did - actually it was the only idea I could come up with and was starting to irritate myself with my indecisiveness!

Papers: "Ecclectic Lurve" and "Gorgeous Ginghams" from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts
"Bling gems" from £land!
Ribbon from Ribbon Oasis

Had cut all the different layers and edged the petal with "bling gems". Sentiment from SU and centre filled with another "bling gem"! Finished off with some ribbon in pink & silver to add another bling bit to the card. Very simple design which I actually quite like! Can you guess what was even nicer? Using a DL card & not just relying on my favourite shape, square cards.

Don't forget if you want to win a FREE DOWNLOAD from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts, all you have to do is join in with the challenge making sure you use at least one Funky Fairy's product on your project. If you don't have a Funky Fairy papers/kits/toppers etc, sneak over to the Inspiration Blog as Shaz is known to give away bits and bobs !

Hope you are all having a fab week and off to have a serious blog hop now (once I've made myself a coffee!),
