Petal Lu Challenge. Green

*updated as this post never went live!

Team A here with this fortnights challenge
and our theme is (Green) flowers.

Please follow the new rules, your project must have flowers, (we are after all, all about flowers!) Please also add flowers of our themed colour.   Not all of the flowers have to be our themed colours, but a few would be nice.  

Here is my inspiration card using the super duper cute Marci with Lollipop from La-la Land Crafts.
Ive also used a selection of their dies and of course, the gorgeous Petal Lu flowers.

On a side note, when making a shaker card, it usually helps to put the acetate in!  The sequins tend to go everywhere if you don't!

A new facebook page (to show off those designs using Petal Lu Blooms, receive discounts and other promotional goodies, exclusive to the page)

Can't wait to see what you all enter.
