Flower Tutorial

Good Morning! I created another slide show tutorial. I cannot take credit for these flowers, this is based on the instructions my friend Joni gave me, but I had received such a great response when I first used these flowers that I wanted to share how to make them in pictorial form.

(Note:  I cannot slow the progression of the slide show, but you can hover your mouse over it and click on the pause button.)

Now that you've created your flowers, use them!  I put them on this card that I made that I am entering into a couple of challenges.  First, the sketch came from Sketch Saturday.  Fabulous sketch!  And Charisma Cardz challenge this week is to use flowers.  How perfect!

And a bit of detail....

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Real Red, Glorious Green
Paper:  American Crafts

I hope you like my card and that my tutorial is helpful.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I'm off to have another cup of coffee and to pack a few more boxes.
