Cuttlebug Challenge!

I entered a challenge over at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot The challenge is to use any photograph and embossed paper. The picture from one of my husband's grandmother's plants that she gave us several years ago. The paper flower is my first attempt at trying to make a layered flower. I used the scalloped circle in the Mini Monograms cart. Cut 9 circles out of vellum at 2" and embossed them with the Swiss Dots folder. You use one as the base and fold the other 8 in half 3 times and glue them on. It was fun. I can't wait to try it with other types of cardstock or felt. Here is a close up of the flower. Oh yeah, I also sprayed it with some marshmallow Glimmer Mist.

Now that the rain has ended, time to get outside in the garden and pull some weeds! Thanks for stopping by!!
