When I was looking through my HUGE stack of scraps, I came across what I thought was the PERFECT sized piece of blue cardstock. I trimmed some cut pieces off of it and measured it so I could get the halfway point. My piece measured just over 8.5" long, so I scored my cardstock at 4.25" using my Scor-Pal. I had a small edge left over on the right side, so I added a small piece of birthday ribbon I found in my stash. For the orange piece of cardstock, I ran it through my Cuttlebug embossing machine using the Happy Birthday embossing folder. I had to try the handmade flower a couple of times before I got the right size for my card, as the first one I made was WAAAAAY too big!
For this week's challenge, we're asking you to create a card with ANYTHING GOES and a handmade flower! Anything goes means exactly that--any theme, any color, any shape--anything . . . as long as your project has a handmade flower. Pattie Curran from Twosday's Techniques provided the video tutorial on handmade flowers this week; I thought it was SUPER easy! You can see the video here. We can't wait to see what you've got in store for us this week!
