Well it's that time again, another new challenge over at Creata Challenge blog. Our theme is 'Say it With Flowers' and here is what I created as an inspiration for you all.....

I have used a C5 base card. For the background I used Studio Light double sided backing paper and added 'gorjuss' lace trim by Docrafts. I added two Bille's die cut circles from plain white paper, then topped these with my main flower made out of the same Studio Light double sided paper using Xcut Flower die set. Foe extra embellishing I added Creata mirror card leaf flourishes cut using Joy Craft die. The flower center was made using Creata mirror card cut out using Xcut flower die and a pearl gem from my stash. To finish off I added an Anita's tag topper, 'gorjuss' lace bow trim, along with a chipboard sentiment, two crochet flowers, brads and pearl gems from my stash.
