DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 62 : Use Embellishments

Hi everyone, today is a very special day for us in Australia. It's our national day. Australia Day...
This is the time to be very proud, to be an Australian....I know I parents migrated out here in the 50' from Europe with the hope of new beginnings, and I was the lucky one to be born here....
Happy Australia Day to all Aussies........

Today is the start of a new challenge over at the the Squirrel and the Fox
which is an Australian based challenge blog......
We are asking to 
use Embellishments
The image is from our very own V's Sweet Ideas...........check out her blog
 I used papers from my stash, I always use pro markers for my colouring and I made the folded flowers out of 3 strips of paper folded, and I finally worked out if you use a hot glue gun, you can keep the folded flower together, any other glue I have tried has been unsuccessful, and they tend to open up when you least expect them to...ha.It is like holding down a toddler that doesn't want it;s nappy changed... I also added two of my own hand made bejewelled pins....
Looking forward to checking out your creations...

Blessings Hilde
