Pick a petal, polka dot, paisley delight!


I have had the card base sittin on my desk for weeks wondering what to do with it. I finally figured it out and I really like the result! I started with a bravo burgundy base, sponged chocolate chip around the edges and faux stitched across the top. The buckaroo blue layer was put through my cuttlebug and wonderful paisley plate. I sponged chocolate chip to help the paisley show then used my gel pen to add dots. This piece was zigzagged with my sewing machine to the base. I stamped my petals with bravo burgundy and used chocolate chip marker in the centers. Stickles were added to the dots. I mounted them to chocolate chip cs and used my scallop scissors to cut them out. The polka dot posies center was done with buckaroo blue, bravo burgundy, and gel pen and chocolate chip marker then sponged with chocolate chip. After I finished it, I cut it out with the scallop scissors. The stem was made with a twisted piece of chocolate chip cs and the leaves stamped in chocolate chip. The thank you piece was stamped with chocolate chip, buckaroo blue and the flower cut out and sponged with chocolate chip adding a brad in the center and a sparkle bling. I added a rhinestone ice brad to the center of the big flower. The ribbon was purposely put on at an angle. I used chocolate gross grain and cranberry stitched ribbon. Thanks for looking! Enjoy!
