Dogwood flowers

I've been meaning to do this challenge all week, I nearly always make my own embellishments although when I think about it ,I have not been using so many these days as I try to keep cards as flat as possible due to the postage rip off thing.  Anyhow after I saw this challenge I spent an afternoon making all sorts of stuff, stamped, inked ,painted, sprayed canvas and made big jazzy flowers with it, got out the old original sizzix (forgot just how heavy that beast is!) and flattened bottle tops, punched out pictures to fit and filled with crystal lacquer, covered buttons with book pages ready to colour when needed and did some shrink plastic bits and pieces, all sitting in a box ready to use. Ok, when I came to make this card nothing I had made was suitable to put on it ! Anyhow I'm still putting it on the challenge(albeit at last minute) the doily is a die cut, the centre strip is punched and I did make the greeting banner at the bottom.

Make It Monday- make your own embellishments
