This was fun!!!!!
Here's my take with a few closeups.

Secret Garden

Ok I have to say .. now that I can make flowers with my new Heartfelt Creations dies... I had to make some more tonight..  Love them.

butterfly trails 

some glitter glue on my pretty flowers

blue and yellow to match the one in my photos.

my cute little flowers from Heartfelt Creations

The butterfly I cut out on my Cameo. I used Tattered Blossoms die from Heartfelt Creations to make my flowers. I'm sure about curling up the ends.. I'm using my stylist. I have to be careful because the petals like to tear. yikes. My friend Shannon gave me some 3-D glitter glue and I have put them on my flowers.
Thanks Kelly for hosting a fun challenge.

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrappn!

Close Ups:

Those are my projects. Make sure to stop by Heartfelt Creations site to check out their awesome videos tutorials and inspirations every week. They really do have some beautiful products. I have to say just working on these two projects was a learning experience. I had to go get the C plate for my Cuttlebug because the dies are super cute and thin.  This was my first flower die as well. I like having the matching stamps. I also used some chalk as I saw in one of their videos.

Until next time ... Happy Scrappn!
