Floral Frenzy at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning.
Yippppeeee it's the weekend.
I'm looking forward to having a lovely Sunday lunch at a local carvery with the family tomorrow to celebrate Mother's Day and also my DH birthday - which was yesterday.
Today I will just go with the flow and see what happens :o)

My share for the day is my DT project for


and this week Team Gems are hoping to inspire you with the theme


Here's what I did:

I am soooo loving this gorgeous colour combo of Lemon & Grey and just had to use the beautiful new paper release at Pink Gem Designs - Lemon Drizzle as the initial inspiration for my notelets - printed onto Linen Cardstock from The Papermill - for added texture :o)
I have used black cardstock as a striking contrast for my mat and layering and accents.

I wanted to keep the notelets fairly flat (for postage costs) so went for some beautiful die cuts as accents instead of 3D style flowers.

Card Ingredients:
Design Papers: Pink Gem 'Lemon Drizzle'
Memory Box: Prom Poppy and Tilth Floral dies
Martha Stewart: Scrolled Lace Border Punch
Doo Hickey Swirl
Sentiments: LOTV and Hobbycraft

Challenges I would like to enter:
Clearly Inspired - Die Cuts
4 Crafty Chicks - Die for Dies
Die-ing for a Challenge - Flower Power

Thanks for popping by - I really appreciate your visit.
Have a fabulous day.
