Tuesday Morning Sketches #60

Good Morning!  I hope your week is off to a great start.  I am so excited about this week's challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Oh my goodness - this has been a fun one to put together.  I am sponsoring this week and the prize is a nice selection of handmade flowers... made by me!

So this week's challenge is to create a card or project using handmade flowers.  I combed through many tutorials on You Tube and other blogs to learn as many types of flowers as I could.  You've seen some recent work with flowers I've made using Penny Duncan's SVG files which is sort of how this challenge got started.

For this marigold, I followed a tutorial I found on You Tube by an extremely talented paper artist named Claire, you can see her video here.  These were pretty easy to make.  I even created my own SVG by importing a digital image into SCAL that look very much like the punches she used.  I am so proud of myself for getting that figured out!

I also couldn't create this card without the help of an awesome sketch!  I used the one over at Our Creative Corner Sketch.

Card stock:  Kraft (SU), Gold and Cream (Recollections)
Paper:  The Breathe Paper Collection (Prima)
Stamps/Ink:  Poppies & Greetings (SNSS), Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Tools:  Cricut/SCAL, SVGs by me, Cuttlebug, Floral Fantasy embossing folder

I hope you join us this week over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It'll be a lot of fun and definitely a little challenging.  Thanks for stopping by.
