You Make Me Smile

A little while ago, Beate posted a tutorial on making the Tim Holtz Grunge Flowers.  If you've seen the flowers that Beate has made. . .WOW!  They are gorgeous!  I didn't have the Tim Holtz Alterations die that she used, but I DID have the Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection from Papertrey Ink.  This flower is pretty similar, except not distressed-looking.  Instead of making a flower with just paper and distressing that paper, I thought I'd see how one of the these flowers would look if I used the coordinating stamp set for this die, Beautiful Blooms II.  I LOVE the way it turned out!  I added some glitter to the flower to make it sparkle.  The sentiment is from the Signature Greetings set.  I used Hawaiian Shores ink for the flower and some Polka Dot Parade patterned paper, Lemon Tart and Hawaiian Shores cardstock
Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Signature Greetings, Beautiful Blooms II (PTI); Ink- Hawaiian Shores (PTI), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, Polka Dot Parade (PTI); Accessories- glitter, Spring Moss Twill (PTI), paper piercer, corner rounder;  Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
