Big Bloom

The current Stampin' Chic challenge is a sketch:

Which I've followed almost exactly! This is once of the other cards that have been ordered for my Mum's Birthday at the weekend. I've used papers from The Big One - I stuck the two dotty sheets back to back and then cut 4 different sized circles from them. Snipped V's from around the edge and then cut deeper towards the centre where the corner of the V was. I then ruffled the petals and layered everything up. The centre of the flower is a black button with card candy centre.

The black grosgrain ribbon is from my stash (it was 10p a bundle from Blackburn Market a while ago!) And the sentiment is from the Just For Men stamping set.

The petals are actually quite stiff so it should stand up to a bit of bashing! Oh - look closely at the centre of the card - you can see me taking the photo!
  • Flowers: Papers from The Big One
  • Card candy: Craftwork Cards
  • Ribbon: From my stash
