more flowers?!

Can you believe I'm still making flowers? me? mom of 3 boys!? This time it's for our weekly feature Challenge me Tuesdays over at Practical Scrappers, This week we're featuring the scalloped circle. Good thing I own 4 different sized punches! Here's a quick card I made using every one of them!

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper
pp: Echo Park| Little boy
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Scrappy Cat
Rub-On: Creative Imaginations
Stamp and Die Cut: Die-namics
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Brad:Heidi Swapp XL Brad
Paper pens: Viva Decor

I cut petals into each circle between the scallops, and then embossed and curved them with a stylus to give dimension. If I had a few more sizes of punches, I could have made an impressive marigold.

I used a Paper Pen to create the yellow dots on the brad in the flower center. you have to do this in layers and let it dry well in between, or the "pearls" will merge together. I also drew the veins on the leaves with my green Paper pen, and once dry, inked a few green shades of Distress over top.
