CHALLENGE #26 - SPRING (add a handmade flower)

In the Southern Hemisphere Spring is just around the corner, and we are all looking forward to the new flowers ... so that's what our challenge is all about ...

SPRING - and we'd like you to add a handmade flower embellishment to your creation.

One random winner will be chosen ( to win 3 images of choice from the store.

We will then have a DT's choice award. This award will go to the card / project that we vote to be our favourite (and must be a digistamps4joy image). This winner will receive a $6 gift voucher to spend in the store. We hope that there will be an entry (or two) using a Digistamps 4 Joy image, as there wasn't one in the previous challenge.

You do not need to use a Digistamps4Joy image to win, but we’d love it if you do!
We will choose 2 runners-up who we feel deserve a spot in the top 3.

Challenge Rules
You can use any image for the challenges. See above.
You have two weeks to enter the challenge.
You may enter a maximum of three (3) entries per DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY challenge.
Your entry must be new. No backlinking to previous posts.

Projects that do not follow the theme will not be entered into the draw.

Here are the Design Team's Creations for your inspiration ...

CARLIE made a fabulous layered flower out of some offcuts of designer paper and attached it with a brad. She used the image "Fairy Friends"...

CAROL made layered flowers with beautiful pearl centres to match the flowers in her image called "Flowers for you"

CHARLENE's pretty sparkly flower has sparkly leaves to match. Her image is called "Floral Heart Wreath"

and this is her fancy fold card open ...

ELENOR used the image called "Dream" and made layered flowers with sparkly centres

JAN used the "Bridal Couple" image and placed tiny handmade daisies on her matching card and tag set

STARLA's multicolour flowers and butterflies adorn the image called "Butterfly Belle"

Jen (that's me) I made a flower out of satin ribbon and added a button centre to embellish my card using the image called "Gypsy"
