Fun flowers!

*** If you're here for the JUGS challenge card scroll down to the next post! ***

Lots of stamping going on here! An interesting sketch this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, it took me a while to come up with something. Here's the sketch! (WMSC46)

I was hoping my new doily stamps would arrive but I'm glad they didn't now. I took the time to look at some of my old sets and played around with some of the elements to come up with these flowers!!

I used one of the larger circles from Teeny Trees by Waltzingmouse Stamps for the centres, I added some foam pads for extra dimension. The leaves are made using one of the tree shapes from the same stamp set. The petals are actually the pine cone stamp from Around Christmastime! I made two layers and cut them out, I shaped the petals of the top layer slightly.

The background is stamped using Text-It in Angel Pink. The label is Spellbinders Grommet Tags, I love the shape of this one! The sentiment is from Half Pint Heroes, the font in this set is perfect for fun and cute cards.

I had to add the pink background when I was taking the photos, the card just disappeared against the white!! Don't forget to check out the amazing creations from the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS DT at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Have a lovely weekend! : )
