Crafty Creations - No. 22

I've been a busy girl this morning and finally got a bit of crafting done, I've made three cards and have another one, hopefully two to do this afternoon, but can only show you this one I've done so far as the other two are birthday cards for some fellow bloggers and I don't want to spoil the surprise!

This card I've made for my lovely Auntie Sheila who is 80 next week and I think the chances of her seeing my blog before the card arrives in South Wales is highly unlikely!

It's my first flowerpot card & I loved doing it, will definitely be doing one of these again (and thanks to Helen of All Things Stampy for the instructions) and I'm entering it into Crafty Creations Celebrations Challenge (ooh what a lot of "C"s!!)

I've used SU! cardstock More Mustard for the pot, the DSP is from Sweet Always and the ribbon is SU! Whisper White, the flowers I've cut out of a sheet of toppers I've had for ages - I think they're Buzzcraft, the sentiment is SU! from "Cheer & Wishes" and is layered onto Pixie Pink c/s, to finish I've cut out the 80 digits on my Cuttlebug.
