Sentimental Sundays Challenge

Gosh, it has been a while since I have participated in a challenge but I could not resist this week's challenge from Sentimental Sundays.  The fact that my sister and I had made a set of cards this week using the most beautiful handmade flowers was an added bonus!

The tissue paper flower was made from a old pattern.  Simply cut out a few layers using a scalloped punch, staple them together in the centre and ruffle up the layers to "fluff" your blossom up.  If you read my post from yesterday you would already know that the crocheted flower was handmade, with love, by my mother.  Only a mother will do these things for you.  My sister and I packed up a an entire set of these sewing themed cards and our mother ended up making over 100 of these soft blossoms.  Sew sweet!

If you have never headed over to Sentimental Sundays then do yourself a favour and be sure to stop by for some inspiration and for a wonderful set of sentiments each and every Sunday.
