Crepe Paper Flower for the Queen



Did I ever have fun making this card. More about that in a sec. I made my card for the newly crowned Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. She is Becky aka BeckyTE and does she ever have some awesome cards. There were several I wanted to case but landed here because I wanted to make a crepe paper flower.

 I found this awesome flower tutorial on Linda's Works of Heart. I shouldn't show you because hers is soooooo gorgeous. O.K., this is my first one....maybe I'll get a lot better, although I do like mine.   Linda's video  is so easy with such super instructions. I can hardly wait to make another one.

I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge-Anything Goes 
The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog-Use Die Cuts or Punches-Used a die cut for making flower and die cuts for swirls and leaves
Divas by Design - Anything Goes

I think I'll also enter this into the HOT PINK challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Of course, that was a few days ago but that is o.k.  It is F4A118.

Recipe:
Paper: PTI white cs, Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, and unknown dp
Ink: Stampin'Up Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Spellbinder Shapeabilities Foliage die, Spellbinders Scalloped rectangle nestabilitie, Cheery Lynn Design Fanciful Flourish, Say it In Studs, crepe paper

Great color combination and your flower is gorgeous! You did an awesome job making it!

We did not get any rain last night...so disappointed as is our grass and plants. It rained this morning for maybe 5 minutes. It was a great day for a bike ride though!
