Wonderful fun flowers

I had a great time playing with this sketch over at Create with Connie and Mary:

The Fun Flowers die is quickly become a favorite of mine.

CCMC 140

My method: For this card, I used Pretty in Pink cardstock as the base. The awesome Melon Mambo designer series paper is from the Ice Cream Parlor paper pack combo and it's only available as a Sale-A-Bration item. It's such a fun paper!

I cut out flower petals with the Fun Flowers die in both the Melon Mambo DSP and glimmer paper. Who cares if Valentine's Day is over? I am using this glimmer paper for everything! I alternated the layers of Melon Mambo and glimmer paper petals and kept the whole flower together with a large Melon Mambo button and linen thread.

As a base for the flower, I used more of that Melon Mambo DSP, added some Soft Suede textured cardstock and a Real Red grosgrain ribbon. To finish the card, I scrunched up some Pretty in Pink ribbon and added a sentiment from the Bring on the Cake stamp set.

A great sketch and I had such fun playing. Thanks for visiting!
