Dottie's World-Handmade Flowers

Hello and Happy Sunday... once again. I missed the last couple of Dottie's World challenges because I was in Oklahoma with my sister, and just couldn't pull it together to get my cards done before I left. No matter how organized I try to get, I always feel DiSOrgaNized! :o)
Anyways, this week at Dottie's World Adele is hosting the challenge. This is what she asked for:

"Hi everyone, Adele here and it's my turn to set the challenge this week. With spring (hopefully) in the air I want you to think:
Paper Roses...............
or daffs, or get the picture? BUT I don't want to see any pre-made flowers please - only die cuts, punched flowers or any flower/s you have made from scratch on your creations this week please. The only other limitation is that a Charmed Download MUST be used....but that is no limitation at all is it, there is so much to choose from! LOL
Don't forget the blog candy over on my own blog could be you who wins yourself a freebie Charmed Download of your choice!
Looking forward to seeing all your bloomers!!!!!!"

I made my flower by using the Sizzix Layered Flowers Die. I just cut it a couple of times with different papers and then crumpled up the flowers so they would have some dimension.
LOVED this challenge-so much fun!
I also love Digi-images. :o) I love being able to make the images any size I wish. The possibilities become endless. For this card I used Madison In France and you can get her HERE
I cropped her and made her bigger than usual and I just love the result!
I colored her in with my copics (bg11/bg32/bg34 gy03/gy13 and my pink favorites: r81/r83/r85)
I also used my glue pen to add some White Prisma Glitter to her French Tam.
The paper is BRAND SPANKIN' NEW! It's Crate Paper: Paper Doll Collection and it is adorable. It comes in a kit that includes lots of double sided matching paper and two sheets of coordinating stickers! LOVE it!
The sentiment "love you much" is SU! and you can get it HERE
I free handed the "babe" hate my hand writing, but was too lazy to get my alphabet stamps out!
I think that's about all for now.
The weather is starting to get nice and the green grass is slowly started to peak through...aaahhhhh spring at last! :o)

By for now!

Your hand made flowers are looking great.
Artificially created flowers appeal more than the Natural ones. And in my opinion it is just like that.... (",)
