Doodle Big Blossom


I saw the sketch challenge and wanted to play! I started with Bravo burgundy for my base. This card is a long card measuring 6 x 3 3/4". I used creamy caramel and buckaroo blue for the piece behind the blossom. I stamped my paisley bg in close to cocoa on the blue and then stitched the edges. Happy everything was stamped with bravo burgundy craft and embossed with clear ep. The flower was stamped on Au chocolat paper and then cut out. I stamped the doodle this swirl with bravo burgundy and then sponged the edges with some chocolate chip. I stitched around the flower and folded the petals to the back. They are stitched on back as well. The center of my flower is my cuttlebug flower die. I cut it out of a chipboard coaster and then used my craft ink to ink it in bravo burgundy and creamy caramel. I sanded off the edges. The flower in the center of the caramel piece is from polka dots and petals. I stamped it in bravo craft and then finished it with stickles in the center. I used a copper making memories brad in the center. The ribbon is a taupe grosgrain ribbon. I hope you like it!
