Flower

I went to my local stamp store today for their make-a-take class. We did this cool flower. They used a punch to do it but I thought I am not paying $25.00 for just one  punch and there were two different sizes. I thought I'll use my scalloped circle nestabilites and save my self a punch of money plus I won't have to punch anything. Here is the card I made at home using the same technique.


I used bo bunny paper for the background and the flower (It was double sided). I had a little trouble coloring her face. You see I did use some punches for the butterflies and the border. I received the butterfly charm from someone but don't remember whom. Added some sprays of pearls and some half pearls around the edges. I used a button in the center of mine flower with some fiber tied around. I was surprised to see the shoes turn a pink color. They were white before I added the crystal sickles.  Oh well I like them just the same. 

Oh if you want to know how we did the flower it is pretty easy. Make three circles and then hold them together while you cut part way in at each indent. (Actually you could skip some and just do every other one or every third one) Then using glue dots put each layer together but don't line the scallops up. Then fluff and add whatever center you would like. In the first one it is just a paper circle. I used a button but you could use a big brad. I think that would be cool.
Hope you enjoy.

Very pretty card and I like the flower. I am going to try it myself. As for the pink shoes they look intentional since they match the card.

Beautiful, Peggie!!!! LOVE her in yellow!!!! I have found there is a lot of pink glitter in the crystal stickles. That's why I went to the diamond stickles instead. Your coloring is wonderful!!
