SOUS Die Cut Challenge ~ Flower ~

Friday again already? I've been away on vacation and the days have flown by! But .. I am excited to be here again bringing you the latest Die Cut challenge at Stuck on U Sketches . The "theme" is flower .. you can use any die cutter or die. But you must have at least one die cut.

I opted to use my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and  made a card using some gorgeous Graphic 45 Baby to Bride papers from the Flying Unicorn store .  I also cut a flower from some Webster's Pages netting and mixed that in with my paper pieces.  Looks reall cool!

I Glimmer Misted my papers in several colors and scrunched and curled my paper while it was still wet. When they were dry, I started layering paper and netting. I used a small Prima rose as my center. Then I put a dab of Gesso here and there.

Just a side view of the flower to show the dimension.

My card was finished with some trim, crinkle ribbon, pearls and a BoBunny trinket butterfly. Now I am all set and ready for the next baby shower!

I hope you will join us in this Die Cut challenge. All we are asking is that your project be new as of 9/9/2011. We hope you will link it up at SOUS so that we can see what you've done. Remember we have some awesome blog candy to give away st SOUS.

Thanks for coming by!
