This week on Nichole Heady's Blog for Papertry Ink , the Challenge was to make a flower using a non-flower die. I had so much fun going through all my Papertrey Ink dies, trying to see which one had the best possibility for making a flower. Then it came to me, I love making rolled flowers from plain circle punches, how fun to make a rolled flower from one of the Papertrey Inks Doily Detail dies. So I cut out a few and started to play and I am really happy with how they turned out, so delicate and a little different from the traditional rolled flowers.
I got a head start on my Mother's Day cards with this one, but with these beautiful papers from Bo Bunny-Country Garden, they just said "Mom" to me. The stamps are from the Daily Design set from Papertrey Ink, I used their Dark Chocolate ink and button twine also. The seam binding I colored with some glimmer mist and added some Star Dust Stickles to the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day.

This is a card I made for one of our neighbours who's wife passed away last week, it is really sad, they were such a nice couple, my kids kinda thought of them of like grandparents, they always watched out them when they were little, and treated them so special around any of the holidays...it was difficult for my kids to go to the funeral, and as I told them it never gets easier...
The wreath stamp is Hero Arts, from a Christmas set, but I love using it for all occassions , the background paper is Melissa Frances-5th ave. This card is also entered in a wonderful new Bog challenge A Blog named Hero Challenge #1
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.
