Handmade zip flowers

Hello everyone!!

I´m back with my handmade flower cards.Last 3 months were really stressful for me.Now I´m comfortably settled in my new house and my daughter started Grade 1 this year. My craft room is
also hopefully I will get more time now for crafting. Big thanks to Ren-Yi and DYSU DT team for encouraging me to make atleast DT submissions.

 I have made 2 cards, using zip from my daughter´s old bag.One with simple five petals and the other yoyo style.
This is picture heavy post.

Here goes my second card.
I have used the same layout for both the cards b´cos I really loved it the way it turned out.
Sentiments are from the stamps of life.


These cards I have made keeping in my mind  these challenges:
Itsy Bitsy :Big B challenge.( I have used here Button and twine Bow in my first card and in second card, I have used Blings,twine bow and Beads in the centre of the flower)
and Colleen Dietrich challenge at Do More with Less to use shabby chic style using Pearls and lace, and Really Reasonable Ribbons #56- Autumn colours with ribbon or lace.
Thanks for stopping by!!
