Flower Power with Polkadoodles

Hello there! We're starting a new challenge off on Polkadoodles today and we are using Flower Power.  Oh so many things I could have used for this one but I decided to use the Dollie goes East cd but there are lots of digi's available with this collection so if you just fancy dipping your toe in with this style from Nikky then go over and have a look, I love them.

I like to get value from my cd's and believe you should be able to make a complete card if you want to or if you are just starting out and don't have the tons of stash long term crafters accumulate.  This card is made using two sheets of paper, some glue and some glitter, I'm guessing most of us can stretch to that!

I opened my graphics package and resized the backing paper down to 5.5 inch square so I could get two onto one sheet of paper,  I then used another sheet to print the topper and a couple of other things for use later.

I cut out the flowers from the top and bottom of one sheet, really easy to cut too.  I put some glue onto the flowers, let it dry a little then sprinkled glitter over, it looks a bit heavy in the picture but it's just really sparkly, I guess the camera doesn't like glitter.  I haven't added a sentiment but once I have decided who's going to get the card I can do it then,
I'm entering this into the following;
