CES CHALLENGES.........Challenge 2

Good Morning every1.....Well its Saturday again peeps...these weeks now really are flying by I'm actually going to buy my 1st crimbo pressie next week, my youngest wants an Ipad & I like to get the expensive ones out the way first lol......BAH HUMBUG!!!lol.
Anyway onto this weeks new challenge over at Crafty Emma's Challenges. Last week we saw an amazing amount of entries.....we were astounded by it & we would like to thank every1 for entering their gorgeous creations.....we hope you will all join us again with this weeks challenge which is......
'Floral Frenzy'
Thats right we want to see flowers, flowery paper. flower embellishments anything thats flowery........we all love our flowers so we know a lot of you will like this challenge. Get yourself over to the challenge blog to get some inspiration, Emma & the rest of the DT girls have done FABULOUS creations that will certainly inspire you.
Without further ado I will show you mine.........
This is my Kinetic card, I've never made 1 of these before I had seen a few about but thought they looked a tad too complicated for me......but then I thought what the eck I will have a go!!! I'm glad I did actually because it unsurprisingly easy, the only time consuming part was put all the layers on lol.
The papers are Websters Pages from Crafty Emma's Store & they are called 'Lullaby Lane & Life's Portrait' I tell ya these papers are truly gorgeous, I sort of didn't want to use them cus of how pretty they are & they are all double sided so you end uo being spoilt for choice.

This is 'Farewell Tilda' another of my new Magnolia's that has took a month to be inked up....oops!! I really need to stop buying stamps but I NEED them!! Tilda is coloured with Promarkers which are also available in Emma's Store. The flowers I have actually made myself which I am quite proud of, I will be making more of these. I made them by printing out a flower shape in 3 diff sizes & coloured with pink Promarkers before being put together.

This is the sentiment in the middle which is from a stamp I brought some time ago & actually forgot I had. I placed gems down the side & along the top....gems were just from my stash.

This is 'Longing Tilda' which I've had for a few months & only used her the once & thought it was the perfect stamp to have on the other side with 'Church Window', both are Magnolia. The flower is a smaller version of the 1 I made on the other side. The Rose charm is from Emma's Shop & thought it was perfect to add to the flower, its really pretty. All the gems are from my stash & the Dew Drops again are from Emma's shop.
Well I think thats about it so why not pop over to CES Challenges & enter this fabulous challenge for a chance to win ...........
A Basic Grey card kit
There is also a Top 3 that gets picked as well.

Hope you like my card I would love to hear what you think....I dont mind whether its good or bad. Thankyou with all my heart to every1 that visits.
Big hugs to all....Bye-D-Bye for now...
