Truly Scrumptious #9

There is a great sketch this time round over at Truely Scrumptious with the promp that you must include altered flowers...

That's right up my street seeing as i'm trying to combine my love of all things altered with my soft spot for the cuties... and the sketch seems to have kick started my mojo back into shape so i set to work!

As you can see i haven't gone for the DL card, i'm not a big fan of those to be honest so i squished it up a bit and made it 6x6, but i think the layout still works.
The flower i made from an old crochet type belt, I just cut a strip, thread some cotton down one side and pulled so it all gathered in the middle, i then cut the edges to form the petals {i made the other mini flower in the photo with the bit i cut off}
The papers are BG, K&Co and a wallpaper sample.
I coloured the Gorjuss with copics.
The stitching is a rub-on roller and i finished with ribbon and a couple of small die-cuts.
Now i just hope my mojo will stick around so i can have at least one day of my hols when i managed to craft and have fun!
Thanks for visiting, leave a comment so i know you stopped by xx
