Inaugural Challenge...

I'm excited to tell you that I'm entering this card into my first ever challenge, over at Just Add Ink (JAI 67). I only hope I can follow the instructions okay and link this post. I can be a bit technically challenged at times, so fingers crossed, it'll work okay and it'll be the first of many...

I've been wanting to make some flower embellishments for a while and finally over the weekend, I sat down and made some.  I'm really pleased with how they turned out and they're so easy that you can't really go wrong. Here's a link to Tania Gould's blog.  She has step by step instructions to take the guess work out of making them. Many thanks Tania, for the inspiration and instructions. Now that I see the photo though, I'm thinking that maybe I should have stuck with three flowers the same size because that big one is quite overbearing... What do you think?
