The Power of Flowers....

We have a new challenged posted up at Simply Create today.....Power of Flowers.  You all blew us away with your Bold and Bright cards for the last challenge and we can hardly wait to see all your fabulous flower creations.  Be sure to pop over to Simply Create to see all the stunning cards the DT has made to get your creative juices flowing.

Here is my shaker card just packed full of flowers.  Stripe paper is DCWV; digital image fairy house is Tiddly Inks; coloring done with Prismacolor pencils and OMS; stamped fairy is Studio G; shaker has some round and mini flower sequins and glitter; Martha Stewart flower border punch; punched and layered flowers with heart brad center; flower fabric trim to frame image is from Hobby Lobby.  TFL

Top Tip Tuesday...... I have a couple of tips to share with you that I used on this card.

First tip is a technique that I learned a year ago and have only used it one other time.  Emboss white core card stock with Cuttlebug dots embossing folder and then sand lightly to reveal the white core.  Use markers on the embossed dots to make very cute dotted paper to match you project.

Second tip is the way I did my shaker for my card.  I recycled the plastic dome shape from some stickers that I bought.  This one was pretty shallow so it worked perfectly.  I actually used two of them exactly the same size so that I could stamp my little fairy on the inside of the top one to make her look like she is flying.
