Purple, Pink and Yellow

Hello Everyone,
I have a little piece for your perusal and also to enter a few Challenges, the law of averages won out this week and I actually won over at Rubber Dance with my Poppy Card (here) I was so surprised, but also delighted,  I am like many of you that religiously enter Challenges and 99% of the time miss out... but not this month, this month I can experience that awesome feeling of being a winner, thank you Rubber Dance you made my day,  I now feel I am doing okay here in my craft room.

 So the Challenges that I would like to enter are:

Optional theme of Flowers.

The Background is a grid made from painted papers and where I have stamped various patterns.
The top layer  is also wet embossed in Black and Gold embossing powders.

The flower is in the process of being manipulated,  it is cut from painted cardstock.
Stamped the bird and  fussycut 
 Attached the finished flower and Bird.

Burlap and embossed Bg.

 It is a wet forecast for the weekend here in Auckland, hope it is better where you are.
Thanks for the visit.

Good grief, it's like I found the edge of earth and fell off...I've missed so much of your amazing talent. This piece has me wringing my hands and ready to get inky and sticky. I LOVE your creation here, but that flower makes me SO happy!
