Flowers, flowers and more flowers

Hi...Happy Thursday.....
Today's creation is my DT project for CRAFT as the new challenge has started today and it is "MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS"  which i really enjoyed doing.I have added them to this jar which i filled with some sweets for my mum in law to go with her flowers for Mother's Day. Labelled the jar with her name only because she lives in a residential home now.
The image of the Butterfly i have used was a freebie from one of our sponsors, Floppy latte Designs
.Floppy Latte Designs
 so i made it a little smaller to make the tag
I made the flowers with a flower punch, which i punched many times, then sprayed them with water, scrunched them up and then placed on top of each other and secured with a brad. wet and scrunched again and dried ...hey presto!!   
Our other sponsors this week are .....crimson cloud,
