Yes, its another one of those flowers! I told you they were so fun to make. I made this one out of Fine Linen PTI cardstock, and then misted it with Pink Bubblegum Shimmer Mist when it was still all closed up. I love how it looks when you fold down the petals. Be prepared to see lots of these in the future.
I'm entering this card in the "Get Creative" Shabby Tea Room challenge.
I stamped the background, first with the flowers in Chai ink, then the flourishes in black, and last the pink polka dots. The birdie was also stamped with tiny polka dots. I also stamped the birdie and the stamp die cut.
I'm also entering this card in the Just Us Girls sketch challenge this week. The essence of the sketch was that the embellishments were concentrated in one corner of the card. I really like this look.
Wee Memories' challenge this week is to use your scraps. I used only scraps (exept the flower) to make this card. I have a bucket die cut scraps that I keep around...sometimes I don't feel like making a card but I still want to play so I get out the cricut or cuttlebug and cut some shapes. Sometimes I just don't use everything I cut out for my project, so in the bucket it goes. It feels good to purge that stash sometimes. I need to create from that bucket more often.
Last but not least, I'm also entering this as another submission for The Shabby Tea Room design team call.
This being the inspiration photo. I went the pink/black/cream route again. Love those colors.
Are you still crossing your fingers for me?
