Papertake Weekly ,,,, Bloom and Grow Challenge

Hi all :-) Hope the weather is blooming marvelous where you are to get you in the mood for this weeks theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge !!


we are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl and the prize is a fab Molly at the Beach stamp for one lucky entrant :-)

I used this very cute Molly Blooms stamp, this one is called Sunflower Molly. I coloured her with Copics and layered her top, shorts, wellies and sunflower, inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. The papers are My Minds Eye from the Mabel pad. I used a Martha Stewart Pansy border punch and a ribbon, watering can charm and brad that were in my stash. The flowers are a mix of Prima and WOC and I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and stickles for sparkle.

I made a pocket on the inside to hold seeds or stamped images ,, depending on who I will send it to ,,, maybe a mixture of both !! Smile The seed packs were a free download from here .

Thanks for looking , the DT and our 2 fab GD’s have made some gorgeous creations for you to see so hop on over to the PTW to see them Smile
