Good Morning Friends!

Hoping you all had a Great weekend and are ready for the new week! 

Today at Friends of Speedy TV we are challenging you to make and use handmade flowers. 
As much as I love making flowers I made several different projects before settling
 on this one. A LO using a pic of my sweet blue eyed blondie granddaughter 
from a couple years ago.I took the pic just as she was turning so
 it was a sweet partial profile I have has sitting waiting to use
 in the right project. I cut and matted and stitched the pic onto several layers first.
The lavender background was chosen as the black shows nicely on it.
The orchid and purple flowers were cut with the Spellbinder Rose die and then I molded them. 
The dark purple small roses are from the Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms and the
 white poms are just plain handmade. The regular leaves I cut and molded 
 and the fern ones are cut with a Marvy punch.

 Next I using modeling past and a Crafters Workshop Mini Flutterby stencil 
my friend Martha gave me I randomly 
scattered the butterflies around. If you look closely you will see I also cut a butterfly
 from vellum and added it. I just wanted it to be subtly
 nested in with the raised ones.

A Spellbinder border was used for the side and stitched on. I also added lavender jewels
 to the flowers centers for a bit of sparkle

The Sentiment if from the Huge Flowers Set and matted onto a Spellbinder Fancy Label.
The it was foam dotted on.
All Stamp Sets and large selection of Papercrafting supplies are available at

 There are myriads of different ways to make HANDMADE flowers so join the fun and 
show us what kinds you like to make best for

This project is spectacular and showcases your wonderful creative talent beautifully. It is just awesome girl friend! First that is a gorgeous picture of your GD. The roses are all so pretty and the butterfly stencil on there is totally amazing as a background. The vellum butterfly is just the right touch for some additional texture. It is so special. Well done!
