Totally Tilda says "Make Your Own Flowers"

Hello my Tilda loving friends, I hope you are all well.
Well it is Sunday again and that means it is time for another challenge over at Totally Tilda but before I give you the details I would just like to say thank you for all your wonderful Lilac and Lace entries for the last challenge.  Boy is it hard to choose a top 3 out of all the fabulous creations we have seen over the last fortnight.  Stop by the Totally Tilda blog to see if you were our lucky winner or one of our Top 3.
So, onto the next challenge and this time the challenge is as the title of the post says, Make Your Own Flowers.  If you've never made your own flowers there are alot of tutorials out there on places like You Tube and Splitcoast Stampers - you'll be amazed at some of them.
So here is the card I made for this challenge:

You will notice that I have used the Oriental Tilda from the Bon Voyage collection so it was only fitting that I made a Water Lily to go with it and I found the tutorial on You Tube although once I had seen the tutorial it was pretty much common sense - takes you right back to your childhood making things like this!!
The ribbon down the side was from Crafty Ribbons as are most of my ribbons.  The little pink butterfly was cut from a Butterfly ribbon again from the same place which I won in one of their Freebie Fridays - check my post here for some details of how you could win £50 to spend at their store!!

My image was coloured with promarkers, Sakura Gelly Glaze pens and watercolour pencils. 

Please remember to stop by the rest of the DT blogs and see what fabulous inspiration they have to show you too - you won't be disappointed.  So what are you waiting for, get your creativity flowing and get those flowers made but most of all have fun.  Don't forget, your card must include our Tilda on it somewhere or you won't be eligible to win our fabulous prize.  Good luck.
