Twofer Flowers

Aaaargh!!!  I just realised I've missed the deadline for the Twofer challenge!!!  
This time the prompt was flowers and I'm so excited about what I came up with but I came up with them a day late.


Oh well.  I'm going to share them anyway.

I chose a flower from Altenew's simple flower set.  I started by making a thank you card with a simple bunch of flowers.  Then I was looking at the swirl on the flower and it made me think of the snail card I made for a recent CASology challenge.  So I took the body of a snail from an Essentials by Ellen set and then used the flower to make him a different shell!   Pretty neat huh?  Finally I added a Lil' Inkers Designs sentiment to make it into an encouragement card.

Oh, man! I'm gutted, too, Jen! These are really sensational designs, fitting the challenge brief perfectly! I love that whimsical little flower which looks delightful in cheery yellow on your thank you card and delicious as a snail on your encouragement card. Sorry. Sorry. I know. Groan. I couldn't resist. But seriously, so perfect for a snail shell and I love the sediment ~ so true! Thank you for almost playing in Twofer Card Challenge #27! I hope we see you next month between June 10-24! Mwah! Hugs, Darnell
