Simon Says Stamp Challenge DT - Make your own Embellishments!

Woohoo! Time for another challenge at Simon Says stamp challenge and as always we are sponsored by the lovely Heidie with a massive $50 credit voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp store as our prize!

Our challenge this week is to make your own embellishments and all the team have made some gorgeous examples!

I have made the March page for my calendar using papers by Magnolia. I have painted the edge of the calendar page with pickett fence crackle paint too.

I have coloured the sweet Tilda with three flowers with copics.

Here's my hand made embellishments! I created the button by die cutting some of the yellow paper with the smallest circle nestie and punching two holes before triple embossing with deep impression embossing powder. I have then gathered some lace from my stash underneath to create a flower. The daffodil I created with two pale yellow Prima flowers. I simply rolled one up for the trumpet of the flower. The leaves were cut with a doohickey die and I've used MS daisy edge punch along the edge of the yellow paper.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamps challenge! Pop over to see the rest of the gorgeous creations from the team! Thanks for looking! x

Jane, tis is such a lovely card. Could you tell me -irenedemars@home.nl - how you did make the March calender, is it a stamp or did you do it yourself? My daughter's B-day is March 6 so I would very much like to add it to the card I want to make for her.
Thank you so much!
