A Flower As Promised

Looking good!  I've managed to use another flower on a project so that's one less flower in my stash.  Let's see how I do for the rest of the week shall we?  I'm sure I can do it, no problem. 

I'm playing along with CPS - Card Sketches challenge today.  Sketch challenges are one of my favourite challenges to play along with.  You simply follow the sketch and then put your take on it.  You'll still need to use your imagination however the DT (Design Team) will always inspire you with some of their wonderful ideas. 

Here is today's sketch

Here is my take on the sketch

To make the flower on the card I took a 1 1/2" four petal flower and put a drop of glue in the centre.  I then scrunched the centre of the flower together until it held.  I took a second identical flower and cut the the four petals apart gluing each petal on to the scrunched flower creating a more dimensional flower.  Using a Martha Stewart leaf punch three leaves were applied around the flower.
I sponged old olive ink around a 3" scalloped circle and applied a thin old olive piece of cardstock with three faux pearls attached.
The sentiment is from Verve and stamped using old olive ink.

Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!
Wishing you many wonderful creations.
Thanks for visiting.
