Moving Along With The Times 'Floral Delights' Challenge

Good morning all. Brr it has got cold again hasn't it, we had to scrap the car yesterday before we could go out and that is just not on lol.

It's all change from this week at Moving Along With The Times because we have lots of new design team members join us. We have been split into two teams, this means we all post fortnightly now but you will still get weekly challenges and inspiration from both teams.

This week Hazel challenged us to 'Floral Delights'. Our wonderful sponsor this week who are A Passion For Stamps gave each of us an image to play with and I chose the lovely Fuschia image.

I cut my card base and the mat layer on my cameo from Bazzill card stock and everything else is from my stash. This year I am challenging myself to use up some of the stash I have had for years. On Saturdays card I used the pegs and today I used these butterflies for some sparkle and both of which I have had since I first started crafting. I placed a white backing behind the cut outs so it matched the dots on the ribbon.

Card Stock - Bazzill
Sentiment - Paper Pretties
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbon
Gems - Stash

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
Greens - Forest Green, Leaf Green & Meadow Green
Pinks - Pink Lobster, Fushia Pink & Pink Carnation
Purples - Purple

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Sweet Stamps - Die Cut & Flower Image
Use It Tuesdays - Make It Sparkle
Lady Anne's - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations - Add Sparkle/Anything Goes
Creative Creations - Anything Goes
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Flowers & Ribbon
Lexi's Creations - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by, I will be back Saturday with my My Time To Craft post and hopefully something else from my never ending supply of unused stash.

G'day Kim, I like your new years resolution to use up some of your older stash. It really can build up very quickly. The butterflies are perfect on your very pretty card and the extra white dots do match beautifully. Adore the scalloped border as well.
