Anything But a Card at MAWTT

Good morning. This is my second post for today - pleasse scroll down to see my DT post for Charisma Cardz.

This time I'm here to share my DT post for

and this week our lovely Lisa has picked the theme


I took this yoghurt pot
(yum yum this is my favourite yoghurt)
and turned it into this pen holder

Using Design Papers from Papermania 'Parkstone Pink'

I made the flower using Spellbinders Blossom Nesties, sprtized with water and then scrunched and layered with a scrummy pearl brad to hold the layers together.

Image from Stitchy Bear Stamps (our sponsor this week) 
Designer 'Floppy Latte'
coloured with PM's and die cut using Spellbinders blossom die - inked before removing from the die
