Just Add Ink #105 - Mini Flower Pot

Hi folks, thought I might try something new & give you a snippet of my project before you get to see the whole thing.  :)

This week the lovely ladies at JAI have a colour challenge & they have provided these pretty, pastel colours to whet your crafting appetite:-

Do you remember the flower pot cards that were all the rage a while ago?  Well, I decided to make a mini version, using these sweet colours & the petal cone die from SU.

Here's my little flower pot (with magnetic strips attached to the back of the pot, so the recipient can display it on their fridge/filing cabinet):-

The flowers are all attached to the card insert, & it looks like this once it's opened:-

ETA:  If you would like instructions on how to make the flowerpot, please go to this post.
