Paper Flowers

Good Evening,

Thought I would share a selection of cards I made recently using Sketchy Flowers from DigiStamp Boutique which I paper pieced. The sentiments were from the Black Floral Set also from DSB

The paper used on this card is Boho Chic from First Edition

The paper used on these cards are Back to Basics IV 

I must say I got really carried away making these cards which are snapped up really quick.
Some I paper pricked round the image others I edged with sketchy lines.
I did make some using the poppy image but they disappeared before I got a photo, might make another to share some day soon. I'm on A/l next week so may get a chance then.
Can't wait as going to London to see Mama Mia with my Sister and staying over for a couple of nights. Must practice my singing & moves !!!!! 

I am going to enter:

Brum Brum!

Good Morning my crafty friends,
Hope you are all well. Big hugs to those that need one.
Well anyone reading my post yesterday will know that I wrote and posted it using my phone. It was the first time I have done it and probably the last. It was not easy but I'm really pleased I managed it, and without too many mistakes. 

Here's another card I made using both papers and pre coloured image from LOTV.
Nothing more to say other than simples and so sweet.
