Make your own embellishments

Hello all,
              Today over at CRAFT we have a new challenge for you. We would like to see you 

Make Your Own Embellishments
We have three fabulous sponsors

A colleague at school lost her father recently at a fairly young age.
I use this gorgeous sentiment from Digi Darla to create my DT card this week.


The frame is made using two Marianne Creatables dies - Anya Large Ovals and a frame thaat came with two swirl dies.
The swirls are made using a doo hickey swirl, 
The roses are made from another Marianne die- and I am really pleased with the way they turned out.

The rest of the DT have made some stunning projects, please visit their blogs and leave them some love.
