Stamp Fairy #8

The challenge at Stamp Fairy this week is a good one - Handmade flowers! It's one of those challenges that sounds hard until you start playing around with it. There's so many wonderful tutorials out there, but I stuck with a tried and true - layered flowers with a Nestie die. I love how this sweet Valentine card turned out and I'm loving this new Sweetheart paperpack from CTMH.
Pop on by the challenge site here for all the rules or to check out the DT's fabulous work this week.
(Ugh, and if you've got any lighting tips for me, I'd love to hear them. I whipped up a little lightbox, but I just can't get the lighting right and it's bugging me!)

Some challenges:
Sketch - Clean and Simple
Warm Colours - Stampin for the Weekend
DIY flowers/flowers - Just Us Girls, Crafty Catz, Pear Tree
Hearts - Simply Create
Recipe - Dutch Dare (3 papers, 3 flowers, 3 sparkly things and ribbon)
Love/Valentines - Stampin Celebration, Paper Sundaes
