This week it's the first challenge of a new month at Daring Cardmakers, so we'd like you to use the flowers associated with the month of August as the starting point for your cards. August's flowers arePoppies and Gladioli. You have a choice of using either flower, or go the whole hog and use both of them as the inspiration for your cards!
For my card I chose a poppy, as I had some new Crate Paper rub ons that I wanted to use. I started with die cutting a scalloped card blank and layered a doily on top. I cut a smaller circle and layered die cut strips of card then made a concertina flower, which I've embellished with a stamped doily I cut out and my poppy rub on. I cut the leaves from an Echo Park embellishment which I thought looked rather good! Topped the card off with a tissue bow - I love these, I think they add a nice flair to projects.
