Whimsy Stamps Challenge 3 Flowers

The theme this week is Flower Power! Create a card or project using flowers in some way. You can use floral papers or stamp a background using floral images or add flowers as embellishments. Get creative using flowers and show us your "flower power." The blog candy prize for this challenge will be the winner's choice of any one stamp from the entire Whimsy Stamps collection! ,
Denise has changed the prize eligibility rules a little bit for this challenge. If you choose to play along and don't use a Whimsy image you will still have a chance at the prize. However, if you do use a Whimsy image on your creation, which of course is what we would like to see, you will be entered into the drawing twice! So, no Whimsy image you get one chance but use a Whimsy image and you get 2 chances! Sound fun?!
Well I went a little bit different this week and decided to make a small gift bag,I used my Nesties to cut the front and back pannels out of MME DP
I used the cute Whimsy owl again, this has to be one of my fav stamps.
The flowers are made with the xcut flower punch.

You can see the current challenge and all the fabulous design team samples by clicking here.Hope you can all find some time to play along this week.
