Today is Linda‘s turn to host the Crafty Friends Challenge. Her challenge to us is to use flowers on your projects. Paper flowers, flower stamps or even flowers on patterned paper.

I combined today’s challenge with one of the current Moxie Fab World Challenges called Doily and Lace. I love the big doily stamp from The Craft’s Meow Simply Delightful stamp set. It was stamped as a background in Cantaloupe Memento ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the second largest Label 25 Nestabilities die. The edges of the label were sponged with the same ink.

The flower of Simply Delightful set was stamped in Lady Bug Memento Ink twice on Solar White cardstock. The flowers were cut out, layered and topped with a Rhinestone. The leaf/stem image from that set was stamped in Pear Tart Memento Ink cut out and adhered under the flower.

A sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a  Nested Lacey Pennants die. The sentiment was adhered to the lower right of the label 25 and the flower was adhered slightly over the pennant.

The card base is a 3 3/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half. The bottom two corners were rounded. A 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Echo Park Hello Summer patterned paper was embossed with the Mystic M-Bossabilities folder. The corners were rounded, the embossed part was sanded and the edges were sewn.

A hole was punched in the lower half of the label and May Arts ribbon was threaded through. The label was adhered to the paper with dimensional foam and the ribbon was tied into a bow. The patterned paper was adhered to the card base. Parts of a  Finesse Rhinestone Swirl and two Leaf Trinket Pins finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. Who doesn’t like flowers, right?
