Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Make your own Flowers

It's Monday already which means it is time for a new Pollycraft Monday LinkLink
Challenge. The theme this week chosen by Michele is 'Make your own flowers'. I chose to use this adorable image of Felicity on a swing. I have made a card in a similar style to this a while back using a Monkey swinging from a tree and was inspired by this card by Emma to have another go.

I used an old Hobbycraft punch for the leaves and the string is by East of India. One of my crafting staples at the moment.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut her out making a slit at the bottom of her hands to thread the string through. I mounted the image with foam pads.

I made a flower from Kraft paper loosely following the tutorial in the Magnolia mag. I don't have a large flower punch so I used a Nesties flower shape. The smaller roses are from my local Craft shop and all papers used are Basic Grey Wisteria.

We have a sponsor for this Challenge. The winner will receive this gorgeous Baby Ellie download from The Creative Cottage

How gorgeous is this? I just love all the polka dot papers!
As well as the overall winner of the Challenge, we will be picking favourites from the entries using a Pollycraft image and these will be able to display the following badge on their blogs.


Each month all the 'Favourites' will be entered into a draw to win a £10 Pollycraft voucher...

I hope you will be able to join us for this Challenge and I look forward to seeing all your cards.
I am also entering this card in the Die Cut Dreams Challenge which is to 'Make your own flowers'.
Have a lovely Monday!
