I also HAD to play along with Mona's color challenge again, because I can never resist the pretty color combo's she uses...
I used one of my 6-for-a-buck glittered star ornament treasures I had found at Hobby Lobby at Christmas and had set aside for the right project. I also used a new tool my wonderful friend, Susan, (who knows how much I like making my own flower embellishments) got me: this punch that I used with creme cardstock...to make this...
I realize there's not always time to make flowers one-petal-at-a-time, but when there is...it sure is fun! (I love it, Susan!! Thank you again for such a "me" gift!!) By the way, I was inspired by Sue, on the DT (HERE), who used a similar punch. I used mine to form a rose rather than a pansy. I also used some Melissa Frances paper (pink) and some older Stampin' Up paper (lavender calico--thanks for that too, Susan!).
The little "Bravo!" sentiment and the little pink "scrollie" accents along the top are the Waltzing Mouse contributions. Hopefully, I can incorporate more next time (you know, since I have so much to choose from :)
Hope you like it! It was a little adventure that I very much enjoyed!!
Thanks so much for visiting me today!!
