Everybody Art Challenge.............3 Papers, 3 Flowers,

The Challenge at Everybody Art Challenge this week is...........

 Recipe: 3 Paper, Text, 3 Flowers

I used the adorable Penny Black's Stitches, she is so sweet, with the challenge this week. I wanted the soft and gentle colours but sad because the pearls within the flowers turned up rather dark - I think I shall  alter them for paler or white ones.

Die: MFT Stitched Ovals, Spellbinders Circles, Elizaneth Craft Designs Bunch of Flowers,  MFT Flourish, Wild Rose Studio Flower Circle Die
