I am NOT ready to go back to work tomorrow. Nope. Not at all, though my back might thank me if I take a break from all this stampin'. :)
Once again, I bring you a week-old challenge, this time from The Paper Players:
September Paper Crafts Gallery Challenge is to use something natural on your card, that's why.
The papers from the Memory Box Valise pack are soooo yummy. Gotta love the Kraft theme. I cut the three petals out of a red piece and put one under the cork and two over, then I curled up the ends of the top two.
Let me tell you something about the cork ... this isn't the really thin stuff that cuts like buttah. This stuff is thick and I needed to use a steel-ruled die to cut it. Also, once cut, it's very fragile. I almost severed a few petals. To ensure no dismemberment would happen later, like as I took the photo (I might be exaggerating, a little), each petal was carefully lifted and a dot of Glossy Accents was applied to secure it. It's not going anywhere.
Here's some detail of the flower:
Okay, then, I'm calling it a night, and I've shut down The Captain's Quarters. I think a hot bath might be in order before bed. However, I cannot think of a better way to spend three days than at the craft table, can you? :)
Thanks for stopping by!
