Handmade Flowers for LIM
I struck lucky with the LIM challenge this week, which is 'Handmade Flowers'. These little roses have been sitting abandoned on my desk for the past couple of weeks after deciding I needed far too many for the oversized card I had been asked to make!
They are made with a couple of different size Scallop Circle punches and are cut and rolled to form a rose - these are made with So Saffron and Very Vanilla.
I used one of the ovals from the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut an aperture in a piece of cardstock then stamped the leaves from Summer Silhouettes in Pear Pizzazz. This was then fixed to the card blank before adding the roses and a few leaves punched with the Bird Builder punch. The card was finished with a simple sentiment from Field Flowers stamped in So Saffron.
Have a great weekend - thankfully it is going to be a little cooler before the return of the heatwave next week!
