Double D - May Flowers

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Team Diane is hosting today and the theme is:

MAY FLOWERS

Here's the inspiration board Diane has created to help you get started . . .

 

 Such pretty colors to choose from but I was having a difficult time choosing so here's what I came up with . . .


I created my frame by die cutting THREE circles using the Tutti Designs 'Nesting Stitched Circles'

TUTTI-220 Nesting Stitched Circles

Then using small pastel Prima flowers, I glued them around the frame.
While they were drying, I stamped this beautiful Penny Black 'Special Wishes' sentiment to my Ella & Viv 'Ethereal Kit' back ground designer paper panel.  Once my flower circle was dry, I attached it to the background panel and added Nuvo White Crystal Drops to each of the flowers. 


Just as I was about to take my card to the light box for photographing, I noticed the yellow flower on the bottom of the circle was 'doubled' which meant the top one was not attached and I already had my Nuvo center in position.  I carefully picked it up off of the other one with a pair of tweezers and glued it to the bottom corner.  Added a center to the flower on the focus circle and VIOLA!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
 YOU could be the lucky winner of this fun die set!

Amazing wreath! Just in these days I thought to make one myself with my punch-out tiny flowers! :D Yours has amazing colours and it pops so well from the sky background!! The big sentiment in the centre is just perfect!!

Very beautiful card with your pretty 'dainty' flowers, clever idea to use them in a wreath, too! Love the addition of the 'Nuvo' centers too!!

Wow, you sure have a lot of those little flowers in different colors, and what a great way to use them. Pretty, pretty! Again, a wonderful sentiment stamp, too. You're always so good with the Nuvos. I'm loving them more now that I figured out how to keep them unplugged.

What a wonderful way to make the sentiment the focal image. Unique and beautiful.

I love those beautiful flowers you made into a wreath design. I have oodles of those Prima flowers so I might just have to use mine in a similar way. I love all the various colors used too!
