Scrap the Boys - April Challenge & a Card for Feeling Sketchy #87

Hi there, my friends.....the challenge for SCRAP THE BOYS this month is to use flowers. Another VERY challenging challenge....& I must say, this one came together pretty much by itself:)
Because my photo had a lot of black in it, I decided to go with as many of these as I can find...plus some flouro colours for a bit of pop.....all the flowers come from The Trinket Track!
 The sequins are attached with Liquid Pearls, & there are splots of Glimmer Glaze in green & yellow around the page:)
 The papers & hearts etc are all Studio Calico...I was rather pleased how that stamp 'love you' worked with the number '2'....
 And I did some 'free stitching' - basically just stitched how I felt, then fitted the picture in amongst it all!!!
My bro has no children --- but it appears my Tim is a bit of a chip off the old block, family wise - as you can see, above!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And since I was using flowers....how about some PRETTY ones, for the FEELING SKETCHY card challenge [last one I got featured, which was a lovely thrill!!]:
I've used VERY old felt flowers, with a lovely resin one from The Trinket Track & that YUMMY stamp is my 3rd Eye fave:)
The sketch:
Thanks for taking a peek at these ones:) And I hope you're having a lovely scrappy time wherever you are in this big wide world ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
If you're in Australia - here's to ANZAC day....Lest We Forget...
