Crafty Calendar Challenge - Floral

It is time for another challenge at Crafty Calendar Challenge today!!! woohoo!!! Thank you all so much for your gorgeous entries last month! We have a great prize from this month's sponsor Simon Says Stamp and the challenge this month is "Floral" with the added option of using pastel colours. Great challenge for this time of year don't you think! I have made a door hanger for my friend's little girl. I made one for her sister's birthday so it was only fair I made one for Lucy too!! The gorgeous papers are BoBunny and I have used both sides for my project. I don't usually go much for yellow but I loved this pastel shade of it when I saw it and it is perfect for spring!
I used this gorgeous Tilda from the winter kit, coloured with distress inks and I have given her chocolate hearts for her cone to match in with the papers.
The large flower is made up of various Prima flowers and a gorgeous pearl brad. I stickled the top flower and sprayed it with glimmer mist as it looked a bit dull. The daisies are from my local store, Running with Scissors and the butterfly gems are from my stash. I punched some swirls with my EK success punch from green cardstock.
The stick on die cut letters are by Doodlebug, they were pink but I inked them with distress ink and added stickles over the top. The gorgeous daisy lace was on an old outfit of my daugthers that I just had to snip off LOL!
On the back I simply added my personal stamp and a couple of swirls and butterflies to match the front.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's gorgeous creations and I hope you can join us this month! x
