I realized recently that I really needed to learn how to make handmade flowers that I really am proud of. Therefore, last night I was deterined to made a decent-looking flower. So I sat down and said "I am going to make a flower that I really like." Well I punched, cut twisted and glued Below is the FIRST one I tried and I really like the way it turned out. It is not perfect, but as the first one, I am really pleased. Now I've got to work on perfection and speed.
I made a second white on white card again for the Cheery Lynn Designs' challenge with that theme. I love the CLD dies. This card has the Polynesian Sail Oval die and to the side I place my precious flower, I needed some folliage so I used the inside pieces that you get from the Japanese Garden die. As additional embellishment I placed two small butterflies.
I usually buy my CLD from Beverly at Classy Cards and Such. She carries all the CLD dies and much, much more. There are stamps, cardstock, the Bow Easy, as well as the dies and she is so fast in shipping her orders! She is having a challenge of Homemade Flowers (CCNS # 12), Well, this card definitely fits the theme.
Drop in at both the Cheery Lynn Designs and Classy Cards and Such site. I am sure you will be addicted like I am to both of these sites..
