Creative card crew handmade flowers

Wow it has been a long while since I have posted! I have been trying to catch up on some comments so my apologies if I haven't been by to you recently!
Our challenge over at creative card crew this wk is handmade flowers. This sort of makes me want to run and hide! I'm a huge flower fan but of the shop bought kind really! It has also been so long since I have had time to make anything that I am out of my creative flow as it were too so I really didn't know where to start!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Robyns fetish which is where my image came from.

I decided to make a tag as I haven't done one in a while and they are always handy at xmas! I have coloured my image with prismas and added some fun flock for snow over the greenery and log cabin roof. All my edges have been inked with stormy sky and stickle sparkled. My image has been stuck over a pretty die cut from hobby habitat and I have added a Tim Holtz ticket with a 7 gypsies postage stamp sentiment and my merry christmas sentiment is from Waltzingmouse.

I have made my flowers by punching them out with a tonic punch, lightly distressing and sparkled the edges, inked the inners for depth and then layered and added a gem brad for the center. Nothing all that fancy and nowhere near as good as some of my teamies fab handmade flowers!
I would like to enter this into Craft your passion anything but a card challenge, Fab and funky xmas, Do it with digis xmas in aug, Aud sentiments Merry christmas, Crafty purple frog anything but a card, Secret crafter xmas is coming, Totally Gorjuss round and round and Allsorts anything but a card challenge.

Hugs to all
