Australian Flora Hop with Make It Crafty

Hello Crafters and welcome to the  . . . .  

Australian Flora - New Release & Hop!



Hello and welcome to our first blog hop for 2016.

It's Australia Day today, a day to celebrate everything Australian so we are excited to be sharing a new release of beautifully illustrated Australian flora digital images from Make it Crafty. They are intricate and delicate with lots of detail and are the perfect choice for many occasions. 

You can find these stunning floral images HERE

I used the Common-Heath Flower for my card. I just love their sweet bell shape. My original goal was to create a one layer card that appeared to be layered. Instead, it turned into a slightly layered card. Uh, oops. 


Sometimes you just have to go where the card takes you. I did put together a short video on making the card. I know it's a hop so feel free to come back and watch it later :) 





Now of course with all Blog Hops there is a PRIZE!!! 
For your chance to win a whopping $25 Make it Crafty voucher make sure you leave some love on all the girls blogs. The Hop will concluded on Saturday 31st January @ 8pm Brisbane Australia time. Winners will be notified so start Hopping!
