Competition entry

I decided to enter a few competitions online with cardmaking, for no other reason than to give me something to do...because when you start out with a goal in mind the achievement felt when you finish is such a good thing..

I chose the challenge at

For this challenge you had to go look at fabric flower jewellery and hair ornaments and take your inspiration from first the idea I had was something Oriental and floral (afterall you cant forget the flowers in this inspiration!) but having looked at Lotus flowers I decided I didnt like the files out there available and didnt want to do a print and cut of one so I chose to do one of my scalloped flowers and the little family of flowers grew....and so did the idea....and this 3d card was born...

The wheelbarrow and box came from a template that I bought right back in 2008 from a company called Card Carousel....I new it would come in handy one day!! I cut out the barrow on my cammie in white card then gave it a rub over with my Tim Holz distress ink in walnut stain....

I wanted the flowers to sit in the barrow but because it had quite deep sides they wouldnt..thats where some green tissue paper came in handy...I screwed it up and pulled it about until it gave a resonable base for the flowers to sit on...To secure the flowers i put them on to foam pads and pressed them onto the tissue paper..I put as many as I dared to into the barrow....All the flowers were made with digipaper from dreemies, and I used 4 different papers...

I made a little scene in CAP2 for the back of the box just to give it a little interest and placed a fence, a watering can and a hedgehog on there and added a branch which I then glues some paper flowers to...
This was my project completed....

Thank you for looking
Love debby xx
