Fussy and Fancy DT Flourishes and Swirls


Morning everyone,
I firstly want to thank everyone who commented on my Allsorts blog hop card last week, I loved reading each and every one and I'm just sorry that I haven't had time to visit you all back, it was great to see so many of you enjoying the hop though and I will be back later to announce who won my candy!
Hope you are looking forward to the long weekend (if in the UK), for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. My two sons, Joshua and Callum, can wear red, white and blue at school today and Jasmine and I are meeting them at lunchtime for a picnic. I can't think of a better end to the term and we're all ready for the week off too!

As it's Friday, it's a new
 Fussy and Fancy challenge
 and this fortnight it's
 Flourishes and Swirls.

I have done a circular side step easel which complements my big Tim Holtz elegant flourishes perfectly! You can't really see the side step very clearly from the photo's but it's to the right of the image and looks fab IRL.
The LOTV image Blossom is the other one that I was lucky enough to win from Lili's Little Fairies challenge a couple of week's ago and I was delighted to discover yesterday that I was picked for one of their Top 3 from last week's challenge! I'm honoured that anyone thinks my creations are that good as I'm a typical self critical crafter and never believe my work is good enough.


I made a tag in coordinating colours:


A better look at the bottom part of the easel:


Supplies:
Grand Nesties Scalloped circle
Nesties lacey square and labels twenty three?
Tim Holtz Elegant flourishes and weathered clock dies
LOTV image Blossom coloured in Distress inks
SU paper and 'For You' sentiment
Marianne creatable rolled flowers
Magnolia Heart Swirl Branch die
Kraft paper is either MME or BG, can't remember which as they've got mixed up together

Challenge I would love to enter:
Lili's Little fairies - Anything Goes

Thanks for taking a look at my card and I hope you are inspired to join in with us this fortnight. I will be back tomorrow to show you what I made for Allsorts this coming week.
Hugs,
