Card Challenge: It's all about the Flowers!

Hi Bo Bunny peeps!  Welcome to another Card Challenge Tuesday!  If this is your first time to stop by on a Tuesday, let me share with your the scoop about our challenges.  We have 2 card challenges every month here on the Bo Bunny blog.  With each challenge, you have the chance to be randomly selected to win a fabulous Bo Bunny prize package.  All you have to do is create your card following the challenge we have posted and share it with us using the link located at the bottom of the post.  We'd also LOVE IT if you would  say "HI" in our comments section to let us know you are playing along!  We love your visits and your comments and appreciate all of you that play along each week!!! 

So, let's get to today's challenge!  The challenge we have for you today, is all about flowers! Pre-made, handmade, punched or folded, we have a fabulous array of gorgeous flowers to share with and inspire you!  Let's take a look at what our amazing design team has created.
 First up, Jolanda created a gorgeous cluster of handmade flowers using a variety of paper punches.  
She then layered them to give them more dimension and added a touch of sparkle with glitter. 

Happy Birthday

Romy used a variety of the gorgeous chipboard and die cut flowers that are part of the Barefoot & Bliss embellishments. By the way, have you checked out the new Noteworthy?! The Noteworthy has gone through a bit of a change with this recent set of release.  Along with including great journaling pieces, the package also contains a fabulous variety of coordinating die cuts that are perfect to use when you want to add a little something special to your project, like Romy did on here on her card.

Switching from paper for a bit, Gabi handmade the large flower on her card using Bo Bunny Wraps and Jewels.  To create the large bloom she gathered the Gabrielle fringed wrap and adhered it to a small disc of cardstock with adhesive. She created the center by leaving the Gabrielle pearl jewel on the clear backing it came on and then placed the small pink gems around the pearl forming a circle around it.  This jeweled piece was then trimmed around and then adhered to the center of the bloom.  The smaller flowers, vines and leaves were created by punching them from Bo Bunny patterned paper and cardstock. She then added a little pen detailing, ink and a gem center to complete them.

(The large flower was made from the Gabrielle Wraps and Jewels.  The small flowers and vine/leaves were punched from Timepiece Dot and Clover Double Dot.)

Last but not least,  Mahlin used a variety of Bo Bunny blooms and then hand made the mini rose centers from ribbon.  Stay tuned for a tutorial later this month on how to create these yourself!
