Kraftyhands April 2016 Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge at Kraftyhands. We hope you will all join in. 
The theme this month is based on this colour chip

"Red, White, Blue and Shield"
The lucky winner will receive a £10 Kraftyhands voucher if they have used a Kraftyhands product.
A full set of the rules are on the blog.

I've made a 6"x 6" (15cm x 15cm) card.  I wanted to keep it simple as not to detract from the fabulous florals. The papers are from the Kraftyhands Seeds of Love CD and mat and layered on white card.

I used the decoupage image of these gorgeous red roses from Card Making Set #4 on the Seeds of Love CD. I printed it out onto glossy photo paper for extra shine and mounted the layers up with foam pads.

I hand cut a shield shape and gold embossed the edges and a circle in the centre. Both sentiments and the flower are from the CD.
I finished the card with three blue gems.

Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of the challenge rules and to view the inspirational creations from my talented team mates. This challenge runs until the end of the month. Remember to be a follower of the challenge blog to qualify for entry.
