My Mums Craft Shop Challenge 65 - No Cards Allowed

Morning! Well what a week, and not long till I go on holiday now - oh I am so looking forward to some sun! anyway what fab entries we had to the colour inspiration challenge last week over at My Mums Craft Shop! Thenk you to everyone that joined and and a big well done to the winner! Pop over to the blog to see if you won!!! 

Anyway, this weeks challenge was a little bit strange for me, I didn't know where to start.... this weeks challenge is 

NO cards allowed! 

Well I haven't spread my wings much more recently other than cards - not had too much time and with the teeth playing up as they have been cards have not been a priority! But I sat and I thought! A month or so ago I wanted to make a special gift for one of Amelias friends from ballet.  I used the wonderful Tagexdo to create a word cloud in the shape of ballet shoes.  I brought the frame and its just been sat there.  I finally got the get up and go to get it done, when I put the word cloud in it looked OK but rather boring.... then I sat and thought....

Out came the punch, out came the flowers and I created the above!  I was so happy with how it turned out.  I never thought I would make something that looks so pretty! What was better was the look on the little ones face when she opened it, she was stunned and couldn't wait to get it on her bedroom wall!

The flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and some from my stash, I used silicone to stick them on and once dried I added stickles over the top to add shine! The butterflies were punched from my Marther Stewart Punch available here. 

This is the arrangement in the top corner from the other angle.  Everyone that has seen it has commented on it and has asked me if I will do one for them.... Im thinking about it - although they don't take long, i'm not sure if I like using so many flowers at once! I am however in the process of doing two or three for Amelia's School Teachers - I can't believe that she will be in Year One starting September! 

Anyway before I go I would like to enter this frame into the following challenges;

Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Di's Digi Designs - Pile on the Flowers
Moving Along with the Times - Make it Sentimental

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope if you have time you will tell me what you think! Hope to see you soon!

I think making things other than cards has been a challenge for me too many times but I try LOL. Your project though came out fantastic. Those slippers and word background- I hadn't heard of that program will have to check it out looks really cool.

Thank you for participating on a Jackson's Digital Expressions challenge.
