Floral Fantasia!!

I hope you are all well & those that need one here's a huge hug! (((((4 you))))) I know a few of my blogging buddies are have a rough time at the moment so those are for you as well xx
I also wanted to just say, I am really sorry I haven't been hopping as much as usual, with having the girlies off school my weekly routine goes to pot. I will try my best to catch up with you all as soon as I can xx

As its Wednesday it means the start of a new challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment. 
This week our theme is....


create a card with a sentiment for the occasion of your choice, using flowers in any way you want! How easy is that, I know most of you use a flower here & there on your creations......but don't forget to pop your sentiment on the front!

This week the DT were lucky enough to get an image from our fab sponsor (details at the end of my post) to play with. After my go at decoupaging with a stamped image the other week & quite liking it, I thought I'd give it another go. I really love the effect you get!
