Purple Flowers

Hi everyone
Hope you all having a good weekend, I've had a good weekend but boy they go quick!

January in our family is a very busy one for birthdays, with approx 12 to sort out, and with my new year's resolution being to make all the cards I send, it's quite a busy month.  So I thought I would try and match them to challenges as I find that easier for inspiration.

This card up is either going to be for my mum in law or sister in law, not decided yet.  I used the challenges over at Less is More and Freshly Made Sketches.  Mandi and Chrissie at Less is More have gone for a purple theme and I love purple.

And here is my card...

It hasn't quite turned out as I wanted, but I'm not sure why.  The papers are from Craftwork Cards.  I made the flowers cutting three scalloped circles and cutting into them, sticking them together and shaping them.  The centres are made with Card Candi...

I used three, and snipped into the top two and stuck them onto a base one, giving them more a flower centre look rather than just a piece of Candi.  Anyway, hope you like it.  I'm going to try something different later when the kids have gone to bed.
See you soon.
