bottle tops spotlight challenge at crafty cardmakers

well it's monday again so must be time for a challenge or spotlight from crafty cardmakers
this weeks spotlight challenge is from paula
she wants us all to use bottle tops any kind plastic or metal and as many as you like
so come on start collecting and have a go
if you are new just pop over to the blog and check the rules before you get going and have fun
oh there is a little prize for the winner of some wording stamps just pop over to the blog there is a picture of them there so you can have a nosey

here is my design for using bottle tops




decided to go with flowers not very original i'm afraid. the smallest flower was made with the sizzix die from tim holtz the rosette. the other flowers i made myself buy just scoring every 1cm a 12 inch long piece of paper not sure how wide they were as didn't measure just made one a bit wider than the other then folding as concertina. i dropped a couple of drops of alcohol ink in each top and then over sprayed them with gold glitter spray look lovey in real life. the dp is from dcwv glitter selection the butterflies and edging of the dp are both MS punches, the stalks of the flowers are marrianne dies
hope you like my effort
come and join us and have a play

Hi Gilly!

thanks so much for your kind comments on my blog :)

In answer to your question, my little boy is 4 years old, and we are thrilled to have just heard that he has been accepted at the local special school for September!! It is always interesting to hear stories from people with older autistic children, encouraging to hear how they have progressed through their life and the challenges it brings to them. I do hope your lad is happy in whatever he is doing :)

MUST say, before I go, that I love your card with the bottle tops as flower centres.....great idea!

Hugs, Ali x
