Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at 

It is the B Teams turn and I am the host for this fortnights challenge.
So I would like to see Handmade or Die Cut Flowers on your creations that you enter.
The challenge runs from 9. AM today till 6. PM Wednesday 29th of March.
We are a challenge that has no sponsors, but you could be one of the top 3 or 5 if chosen.
Please pop over to the challenge blog to see my wonderful Team Friends creations.
So here is mine for our challenge, this card was inspired by Pam's wonderful card HERE.
I did not have her dies so this is my version.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I cut out the flowers in white card, and coloured them with Aqua Markers, and the layered them to acheive the lift to the flowers.

I have also decorated a box for this challenge.

I painted the box with Starlight Paints.
Then I decorated it with items from my stash.
I made the Rose and hand cut the leaves, and coloured them.

Thank you so much for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Oh my goodness Jenny, I was just going to comment on how stunning your card is but then I scrolled down and saw this amazing box too. The gold rose has to be the most perfect handmade rose that I've ever seen. I remember that you mentioned in your last comment on my blog that you would love to watch me create, and I have to say the exactly same to you, I could learn so much from you. What a pity that we don't live closer, we could drink tea, chat and craft all day long, doesn't that sound just perfect? :) Absolutely stunning work Jenny! Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Your awesome flowers always look just like 'the real thing'. That yellow rose is just so full & pretty, colored so perfectly too. Love the multi-colors of the doily layering against that hot pink background, and of course the delicate corners. Great work on your hostess gig! TFS & Hugs
