Just Us Girls Challenge No. 4


When I watched Monas video yesterday about how to make flowers I was hooked. I am not quite sure whether tissue paper is the same what I would call "Seidenpapier" in Germany but anyway it worked. These flowers are the perfect decoration for a flowerpot card.

The flowers are cut out with my cuttlebug using various circles. The centre is made of a tiny button. The flowerpot itself is embossed and shaded with white ink. The leaves are prefabricated veil leafes in varius sizes and colours.

So this is my entry for the fourth Just Us Girls Challenge:


Thanks for looking!

Martina, you are so right! These flowers ARE perfect for a flower pot card! I think the paper you found in Germany is similar to our tissue paper...it appears to be anyway :O) Your flowers are GORGEOUS! Love that you used circles instead of a flower die...way to show the versatility of Mona's technique! Also love your rich, vibrant colors and those veil leaves! What a perfect complement to your pretty flowers. Your flower part also perfectly coordinates with your flowers!!

Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls again this week! Hope to see you on Saturday for a fab Wild Card challenge where I'll be your host! You don't want to miss it...EVERY participant will be a winner!

Wow Martina - what a great way to do the flower pot card - I LOVE IT. Yes the paper you used looks very similar to our tissue paper. Your leaves are very pretty - do you make or buy those? My daughter lives in Germany and we are going to visit over the holidays. Is there something you recommend that we MUST NOT MISS? She is in Frankfurt.

Thanks SO much for playing along with Just Us Girls! I hope you had a great time and will join us again next Saturday for a brand new WILD CARD challenge.
