Handmade blooms

The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming!
Over at Posh Designs Scrapbook Store there was a really cool tutorial on handmade flowers which really appealed to me. Basically scraps of paper (K&Co and Dovecraft in this case), glue, a button and glitter. I've made flowers before by stamping and cutting but I thought this looked really effective in a non-conventional manner. So this is my take on it.
Then I noticed that there were a few challenges to include flowers and I needed a birthday card. So I've added a Sarah Kay image coloured with PMs.

Some more K&Co papers and sentiment, alittle bit of corner punching and paper cutting and a smidgen of Sparkles.
I'm entering this into:
1. Susie and Vikki's lovely Die Cut Dreams Challenge - Make your own flowers
2. Pollycraft Mondays Challenge - Make your own Flowers
3. Creative Card Crew Challenge - April Showers bring May Flowers
Go and see all the lovely DT work - totally awesome.
Thanks for looking and any comments.
