Country View Crafts Challenges - Plantastic

It's October already, which means it's time for another challenge over at Country View Crafts.  The topic this month is Plantastic.

Here is my first project

I started off my distressing a square of green card for my background.

Next, I use my gel plate  to create a background using Dina Wakely paints.

This was then cut down and mounted to the green panel.

Here is where the fun begins.  I used Tim Holtz Funky Floral 1 and 2 and cut loads of flowers and leaves in different colours.

Once I finished die cutting I then started to arrange them onto my card.

Once these were stuck down I added a die cut black 'Happy Birthday' so that it stood out on the card.  To finish I drew a scribbled border.

I hope you like my card as much as I liked making it.  Thanks for joining me today.  Don't forget to visit the Country View Crafts Challenge blog to see the inspiration from the other design team members.

I hope that I have inspired you to join in with the challenge - don't forget, by linking up your project on the Challenge blog you may be in with a chance of winning a voucher to use at the Country View Crafts shop.

Happy Crafting!
