Bouquet

Today's Limited Supply Challenge on SCS was Message Bouquets, to put a bouquet on your card. Since I just got my scallop circle punch and Pick a Petal brass template, I wanted to use them right away! I used the "smile" petal from the Pick a Petal set to make stems for the flowers. The piercing around the petals is a must for me, and one of the first reasons I HAD TO HAVE that brass template! :) I added Stickles in Lime for the leaves of the flowers, Yellow for the centers of the little flowers, and Stardust for the dots on the big flower. One of the big petals didn't ink all the way, so that's how the little green ladybug happened! She is from the Garden Whimsy set. I used her to cover up the "white spot" on the petal. I am really going to LOVE this brass template! I do already! Now I have to ink up the rest of the Garden Whimsy set. I just LOVE it! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having the start of a great weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Pick a Petal, Garden Whimsy; Ink- Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron; Paper- Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White; Accessories- Pick a Petal brass template, Stickles in Stardust, Lime and Yellow, paper piercer, scallop circle punch, grosgrain ribbon.
