Kraftyhands June 2014 Challenge

Today sees the start of the June challenge at Kraftyhands. Thank you to all of you who joined in with the May challenge, the entries were fabulous and the winners have been posted on the blog. This challenge is just for fun and the theme this month is
"Floral Fancy"
We would love it if you used a Kraftyhands product somewhere on your project, but it's not necessary. We do ask though that you follow the challenge blog.

I have used the Picnic Time CD to make my card for this month. The CD will officially be released on Monday 9th June but is available to pre-order here at the discounted price of £13.99. It's full of the most delightful teddy bear images and fabulous papers.

I matted one of the gorgeous butterfly papers onto green card and used two Docrafts dies to cut out the grass borders. I made sure the borders were wider than the card so I could create a bowed front.

I printed one of the mounted toppers and decoupaged the cute image with foam pads. As the theme is Floral Fancy, I went to town with flowers from my stash. I cut up some Cheery Lynn leaf flourishes and tucked them in amongst the flowers. 

I printed the sentiment onto a hessian paper from the CD, cut it into a banner and mounted it with foam pads in the centre. 

Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of the challenge rules and to view the fabulous creations from the talented DT. Remember to be a follower to qualify for entry. You can also keep up to date with all the latest Kraftyhands news and see sneak peeks on the Kraftyhands Blog.
