My first blog hop at Mo's - Yayyhhh- and Colour Create no 73!!

Hello peeps - oooh it's so exciting today, it's my first Blog Hop for Mo's Dream Team!! And of course it's our fortnightly challenge at Colour Create.  And, and, as you will see, I've actually managed to combine my card for both events - not something I manage to do very often!  Just as well really, as someone has stolen the days this week and I wouldn't have had time to make another!! 

To kick off then, the Hop at Mo's this month has been chosen by my lovely new teamie, Heidy, and her chosen theme is to make your own flowers. So Heidy's blog is where you should start if you've come straight here and you want to  hop along! If you are hopping, hopefully you've arrived here from Jane's blog!
For Colour Create, the inspiration picture has been picked by our fabby Mina, with these gorgeous colours of Blue, Grey and White.  Oh and the optional extra is Vellum!

16 Jun - Challenge 73 - Mina - Blue, grey and white
For my card, I've used this formidable little lady, Aunt Flo, from Mo's Digital Pencil, which is available here - ain't she fabulous, right down to her sensible shoes and Norah Batty tights!!
I've used a strip of vellum behind the image and the leaves are some die cut vellum ones that have been stash lurking!!  The top flower also has some vellum layers, cut with the Nesties Bloom die, and layered up with some of the matching paper in the background. So that's one handmade flower!
The other flowers I made by twisting ribbon round onto a circle covered with adhesive and added a gem, or diamante to the centre! That's my handmade flowers done then.
So there you have it, my two for one!!  Don't forget to visit my lovelies at Colour Create to see their fabulous creations this challenge.  Hope you will join us too.  Oh and if you're hopping with us at Mo, leave a comment on each team member's blog as you go round and you could win one of two $5 dollar vouchers to spend at Mo's - so many lovely images, so little time!! (Don't forget, it starts at Heidy's!)

Finally, I should say that I'm entering my card into the Create 4 Fun challenge, whose super sketch I followed!
