Creating with my favourite colours!

The creation i have to show you today was inspired by this inspiration pic from THE SHABBY TEA ROOM

Photo_inspiration__55

These colours happen to be my most favouritist *Is that even a word?…lol* colours to work with together! Absolutely love them. :) Gotta just say that i WON the Shabby tea room challenge last week with the bird cage that i did :) …Iam so soooo pleased :) Go me!...haha! Thankyou TSTR girlies:) So these were the colours that i was gonna be working with, teamed with the sketch from CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES, I did ‘start’ with the sketch but then just kept adding to it…lol  Spring and sunshine inspired creations were the order of the day over at RAISE THE BAR and last but certainly not least…ribbon, bling and handmade paper flowers were needed over at OUR CREATIVE CORNER *My ribbon roses were also handmade by me, if they count as well :)* I WAS also creating a banner to go with this set ….but it isn’t quite finished :( So here is what i made.

For ages i’ve been wanting to create some sort of flower thingy…lol Like one of those topiary thingies.  So after i had started creating the flower thingy i realised that i didn’t have a pot for it to go in…so now it’s more like a wand…lol Originally i was gonna make 3, the other 2 were gonna be smaller.

My first ever attempt at ‘Proper’ ribbon roses!! I actually burnt me finger with the heat gun doing these…lol

I just sooo love these colours together.

That lace really sparkles. it’s soooo pretty.

A single foam rose and a little pink bear grass added for ‘extra prettiness’ lol (More left over wedding stuff)

I punched out so many circles and flowers to do this. I punched out way way more than i needed.So will definitely be doing more of these sort of things.

All the papers, sentiment and frame are from My time made easy The card blank was cut on the cricut ages and ages ago from a sheet of Anna griffin cardstock. All the ribbon, bling etc are from me stash.
