Circle of Flowers Card

Hi Everyone,

This week I have created a card for Cheery Lynn Designs using a variety of their flower dies, and included the gorgeous Chicken Wire die-cut as a background. 
I used the Circle Classic Series dies to create a frame for my arrangement, as I wanted to showcase the delicate details of the Chicken Wire die.  If you click on the below photograph, you will see how the coils of wire can be seen in the die. The flowers were created using the Sunflower die, with several layers and a curling of the petals using a kitchen skewer.  The Sweet Williams were created by folding each petal concertina style, and then building in layers.  The spindly flower was created using the Build A Flower #1 and just adding layers of the die-cut and centred with a brad to complete.  The filler flowers are from the Build A Flower #2 die, and really are a perfect size to team with all the other Cheery Lynn Designs 'flower' dies.
The foliage was created by adding in snippets of the Wreath Strip, teamed with Olive Branches, and several of the smaller leaves from the Small Leaves #2.  

To complete the card, I applied the Lace Corner Deco A to corners, and added my favourite butterfly, from the Exotic Butterfly Mini die-set.
Don't forget the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog, with a fantastic challenge theme each week.  You can find all the details here and the prize consists of a $20 voucher  - also a wonderful place to visit for inspiration.

Till next week..
