Paper Sundaes Challenge #27 - Make your own flowers

Happy Sundae!  When I first heard about our Challenge #27 - Make your own Flowers for this week over at Paper Sundaes I thought "Wow, this will be easy".  Boy was I wrong.....I found a tutorial that I really wanted to try over at Splitcoaststampers for rolled flowers.  They looked so beautiful so I couldn't wait to try it and I did however my flowers didn't look anything like flowers so I scrapped that idea.   Not sure what I did wrong but will try it again.  The flowers I made for my card were cut out using a SU punch and then inked & stickles added and layered together with a brad....very simple!  For my card I chose to use the image "Fairies on Tiptoe" by this week's sponsor Lili of the Valley.   I have to say that they have some of the most adorable stamps & even have some brand new Christmas stamps which were just released so be sure to check them out!

I coloured this super sweet image with copics and added pink stickles to the flowers.  All paper I used was from "My Mind's Eye - Totally Girl" pack.  I inked the edges with Versamagic Spring Pansy Chalk ink and sprayed the whole card with Pearl Glimmer Mist.  It really shimmers so much in person but I couldn't capture it in the photo.  The butterflies were cut out using a Martha Stewart Punch.  Other supplies used:  pearls by Hero Arts, SU scallop border punch & circle & scallop circle nestabilities.  I really love this card since it's using my favourite colour purple!  Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!  PS - Don't forget about our Paper Sundaes Design Team call, we are looking for 2-3 new members!  Check it out here!

I will be entering this card in the Flutter by Wednesday Challenge #113 - 3 or more layers.
