It's Tuesday, and that means a new challenge over at Shopping Our Stash. This week's theme is Flower Power and we ask you to use your handmade or 3-d flowers! Your project can include stamped images, but it also needs to have at least one flower that is either handmade or a 3-d flower you bought. Think Wild Orchid Crafts, puffy stickers, Primas, etc.
One thing I do not hoard is flowers, so I chose to make one instead. Here's my card, then I'll explain:
The Always Artichoke layer was easily retrieved from my newly organized remnants. The strip of patterned paper is from a now-opened pack of DCWV papers that jumped into my basket from a Mike's sale display. I was weak.
The cork letters are older than dirt. I got them years ago from the Mike's dollar bin, and maybe more than one set of them. As I desperately searched The Captain's Quarters for letters small enough to fit in that corner, those were the only ones. Still perhaps not a great choice.
Did you notice I sewed that strip of Artichoke card stock into place? :)
I followed this expired (of course) sketch from Retro Sketches:
Now it's your turn! Go into your stash and make a flower, or find one that is 3D. Then make a card and link us up at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
PS: My card also qualifies for today's HYCCT challenge. Please stop by later to find out how. :D
