Spring Flowers

Hello All!! 
I have been busy working on several challenges...
challenges are so fun, don't you think
and they keep your creative mojo going!!
 
 
I made this beauty for 2 challenges.....
for the Cheery Lynn Design Challenge blog to use "doilies"
I am getting quite a bit of a nice collection of doily dies....
I have always loved vintage linens, so guess this is why they appeal to me...
 
 
I also am entering this in the challenge at "Papercraft Star"
to create your project in the colors of your kitchen...
now how fun is that???
My kitchen is in the process of being changed a bit....
it is Red~Black~Yellow~Cream with a bit of Sage thrown in....
I am thinking of taking the yellow out and adding "teal" this summer!!
 
For my flowers I used the Cheery Lynn Design die Cuties Fringe #2...
there are 4 of these fringe dies, and I have all but one...and love how they look
and they are super easy to construct...sometimes I like easy!!
The leaves are from Stacker Flower #1 Leaf, which I cut apart
The beautiful Doily is Spring Flower Burst Doily...one of my favorites
it looks just like one of "grandma's" dolies.....
Oh and Cheery Lynn is seeking guest designers in this challenge...so give it a try!!

I also have three of the cuties and Im afraid the one you used is the one I didnt get, darn it. I also love the doilies, grandma crocheted them so love them too. Hope you win.

Super cute and sweet! Love the cheery colors of your kitchen. The flowers and their centers are awesome! What a fun challenge. If I had more time I'd love to visit everyone and see what their kitchen colors are. Interesting. Maybe I'll get back to that. Thanks!
