…Crazy 4 Paper Flowers (C4C42)

card_1375

Happy Saturday, everyone!  It’s “crazy” time again at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog, and this week we have a Paper Flower Challenge!  I have an affinity for paper flowers…whether they come premade or if I make them myself.  I wanted to make a “girly” card for this challenge, so I used some of the images from There She Goes’ set called “Fairy Good Day”.  I stamped the image and sentiment in Black Ink, then colored the fairy with some Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the images with some patterned papers from October Afternoon’s Report Card paper pad.  My paper flowers are actually diecuts, and I added a Red Button with some Twine to the center of the stacked blooms.  After adding some Distressing, Paper Piercing, Rhinestones, and Stitching the card was completed.

Let's see what the rest of the Crazies have created with this week's sketch:

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and now it's your turn to create a card or project using PAPER FLOWERS to share with us. Be sure to add your creation to Mister Linky back at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog post...we can't wait to see what you come up with! See you back here tomorrow with another Fave Five picks from this week’s MTSC! Until then...
