Spring Flowers!

 I wish I could average the two pictures.  Black cards are a pain to photograph. 

Okay! I redid my card for the sketch from The Paper Players today. I like this one much better! With spring here, I can't stop looking at all the flowers. For this card, I pulled out my scallop circle punches and made a beautiful 3-D flower. I LOVE making them. In fact, my Spring Flowers class next month will include a card using them.

The sketch is here:

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler (can you figure out where I used this?)
Paper: Basic Black, Real Red, Basic Gray, Neutrals Designer Paper stack
Tools: Scallop Circle punches, paper piercer, Decorative Label punch
Accessories: Neutrals glimmer brads, Real Red Satin Ribbon
