Paper Cupcake Challenge – Flowers…

flowergirlcopy

But not just any flowers… they have to be hand made by you! Check out PCC blog for the rules and to submit your card and to see what you could win.

When I saw this image, Sunday Afternoon, and I fell in love with it. I wanted to go with soft tones so I used prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits to blend. I used DCWV The Linen Closet matstack and river rock cardstock. Martha Stewart  border punch and added pearls. I made my flower using ribbon and added a shimmer brad to the middle of it. You can find the tutorial on how to make the flower here.

I used last week’s Sketch Challenge 293 from SCS for my layout.
