Cute Card Thursday - So Charming.

The challenge this week over at Cute Card Thursday is to use a charm on your card. I've bought lots of charms just recently but on searching through them this is my last flower!! a bit of shopping required me thinks lol!!

This is another of the stamps I won from Squiggles & Giggles & is Daisy with Flowers, such a cutie. The papers & sentiment were also in the candy & are from Kay & Co.

The cardstock is from Stampin Up as is the button & the ribbon is from my stash.

I've made the little pin from beads I had in my stash & threaded them onto a pin I bought at Hobbycraft last week.

I'm really pleased with the flower which is a classic case of searching through the things you've got before buying new!! I'll explain ..... I have been waiting for a local craft shop to get the Whale Retro Flower punch in stock & it's been out of stock for weeks & weeks. I'd seen the flowers Rach had posted a tutorial for on her blog & wanted to have a go. While having a tidy up I went through my Sizzix dies which I used to use all the time before I started stamping & there was a flower die which while not a retro flower will certainly do & save me around £13!! (to spend on something else lol!!)
I've also used the EK Success punch, which was also part of the candy, on the border of the cardstock.

Thanks for looking.
