The Old Cotton Reel

Hi everyone, hope you having a good day.
Well iv finally finished playing with a cotton reel. I did enjoy making this and i'm pleased how it has turned out.
Every so often at my local craft warehouse (Colemans) they have competitions to raise money for charities. This time you pay £2.50 for the cotton reel and £2 is going to Cransley Hospice. You can make anything you like so long as it includes the cotton reel so i have come up with a vase.
For the flowers i have used lilac and cream card and papers are from Crafty Individuals/Springtime. X cut flower die and Marianne die for the flourishes and leaves. The square and circles are all so X cut dies and embossed with a Craft-Too flower embossing folder.
Have posted plenty of photos.
When the competitions over i think they sell all the creation and that money also goes to the charity...that's what happened last time.
Hope you like...
Would like to enter my creation into =
the old reel before....had to show you this again
