Daring Cardmakers - 'Cards with a certain a-PEEL OFF', eeek!

It's been a while since I had chance to do the dare over at http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com so as my lovely boss gave me the afternoon off, I thought I would join in again, and here it is:

"You can blame Keryn with her rather lovely cool colours dare last week (great cards all BTW!) for the inspiration for this week. I found that I needed to use a peel off and was quite pleased with the results and that got me thinking of a fiendish dare. At least it is for me (Lythan) who is often disparaging of the much maligned shiny sticker. But actually there are some really nice examples of the genre around now. And also people who can do all sorts of gorgeous things with peel off stickers that I would not have thought of. Are you one of them?
So go on, rummage around in your craft stash and
Make a card with Peel Offs"


Well, I fumbled about at the bottom of a box of unused stash and unearthed these white flower peel offs which I thought I may be able to bring myself to use. Now, I'm not a peel off snob, I have seen people do amazing things with peel offs, but they're just not my cup of tea.......I may have changed my mind though after using these.
Papers are Daisy Bucket, white flower peels offs stuck on Bazzil Bling and hand cut, paper flowers Making Memories, Tilda of course and a touch of glitter glue. Turned out much better than I could have hoped.

TFL, Juliet xx

Good to have you back Juliet.
Can't say that I've seen White flower peel-off's before but your card is so pretty and the flowers look great.
