Crafty Purple Frog (1st DT Card)- Flower Power

Good Morning everyone,

Exciting day today, my first DT card for the fabulous Crafty Purple Frog Challenge.  This week the theme is 'Flower Power'.  I used the decoupage sheet named Eglantine in Dawn.  You can get this from http://thecraftypurplefrog.blogspot.com/ . I then made the 'flowers' by using my Hero Arts stamps, i  distressed them and added buttons and finshed them off with black laces that i recycled from something i threw away ( cant remember what it was though! lol!). I just knew they would come in handy someday!

Please pop over and take a look at the other DT creations.  We would love to see you enter the challenge too.  Go on, you know you want to! 

1st prize is the new Valentines paper set and 2 downloads of your choice from The Crafty Purple Frog
2nd prize is the new Valentines paper set and 1 download of your choice from The Crafty Purple Frog
3rd prize is the new Valentines paper set from The Crafty Purple Frog

This is my card using: Eglantine in Dawn Decoupage Sheet from Crafty Purple Frog
