Hello every one, There is a new challenge up at  AAA cards  , with  Maxi white space  as our game and an optional twist of flowers.                                            Craftyscrappers  are our kind sponsors  and they are giving away a set of their digital stamps to our winner. I am twisting with flowers... with a flower! Lot of florals from me lately but I can't help it, the talent around me makes me itch to try and improve.

I have been going through some Kit and Clowder free classes (ok.. only the first lesson - light source basics yet) and I thought of using my greys. I popped my flower on foam dots and used some Nuvo drops around it . The sentiment is from Uniko Ltd, which seems to be retired now - called Simply Said Birthday. The
