First Foamiran Flowers

After seeing lots of beautiful flowers made with foamiran on the internet, 
I decided to acquire some for myself and see what I could create with it. 

This card is to congratulate a beautiful young lady (we have 
known her since she was a little girl) and her fiance, 
on the occasion of their engagement.

The 2 large roses on the left and the small apricot open one on the left are my
very first attempts using Foamiran. They are nowhere near the standard of 
ones I have seen on pinterest, youtube and many blogs, but if I practice
a lot I hope to improve. The foliage and doily are cut with my lovely
new dies, with which I treated myself just before Christmas.

I coloured the white foamiran with various distress inks.

The small rose at the top was made from some tiny scraps of foamiran.

Edit I must apologise for the hot glue strings on the rose...I did not 
see them until I was about to hit 'publish'.

I used a tiny 'Congratulations' peel-off sticker from my huge collection. Lovely
Maddy began piano lessons from John when she was a little girl, and continued
weekly lessons until John became ill in 2015. That is why I included some 
 'music' paper on the card. Maddy is now a very proficient pianist and 
has visited us since we moved from our farm.

Challenges I would like to enter

I hope you have all recovered from the festive season, and are getting back 'into the swing' of regular life. I am finding it very difficult to believe that January will soon be over.

Until next time, "happy crafting" and thank you for visiting.
