Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference - Card Challenge

This is the card I made for the Scrap of Difference Cyber Crop Card Challenge this month.
We were asked to use a handmade flower ( mine is made using a tutorial called "Pinwheel Flowers") and the word "Friend" had to be somewhere on the card and also to use an item bought for something other than scrapbooking - for this part of the challenge I have used an old calendar for the floral square and the paper used for making the flower. I sanded the edges of the circles cut for making the flower and also sanded the square of calendar paper.

Cyber Crop at Scrap of Difference

This last weekend I took part in a Cyber Crop for Scrap of Difference - only got to do one challenge layout and the card challenge.

For this page we had to use two hand made flowers or one hand made plus one altered flower. I enjoyed making the flowers for this. In the forum some links to tutorials on making flowers was shared. I chose the "Loopy Flower" and the "Scrunched Rosettes" to play with and I am pleased with how they turned out. The Rosettes worked well as I had some nice soft silk type paper in my stash from years ago.

This is a photo of my daughter and her husband on their wedding day taken by the professional photographer. I have always felt this photo had a "hippy" feel to it which I thought the use of the flowers would work okay with.
My photographing of the layout has not shown the true colour of the plain cardstock I used - it was a light cream colour which matched the cream colour in the patterned paper of the flowers.
It was good to get another page done for the album of my Daughter's wedding.. seeing it took place in December 2005.
