Bizzy Bec's Creatalicious Challenge #3

It's time to get Bizzy again. This month at Creatalicious Challenges we want to see you using all those scraps you're loathe to throw away, but never get round to using. Additionally, we would like to se you make your own flowers & include them on your marvellous creations.
My project this month has drawn much inspiration from a fantastic tutorial over at the Belles & Whistles blog, see it here. When I saw it I knew this was what I was going to make for my boys for Halloween. Check out the tutorial, it is really easy to make. I embossed the stalk for a bit of texture & used a swirl punch to make the grass/stems. Both images are digi-images I won over at Louby-Loo's Digital Delights. This little fella is Billy. I coloured him with my Promarkers. If you click on the photos, you should be able to see him better.
My flowers were made with various punches. Those on the pumpkin are highlighted with jewels. The one on the card is made with retro punches. The black petals were tightly rolled & allowed to unravel, & the centre is two thin pieces of black & patterned paper & loosely rolled & glued in place.
Hope by now you are already planning your own cards. Remember, this is a monthly challenge, so you have loads of time to get your entries in. For more inspiration, see the fabulous cards of my DT colleagues here. Plus, there are fabulous prizes, provided by the lovely Bizzy Bec herself up for grabs. Thanks for looking. Hope you are all having a good week.
