Jolly Friends

I'm using neglected items from my stash, aren't you proud?

I've had this sentiment sticker forever (and someone else had it before me).

That's one neglected sticker.

I've also had these papers for a few years and they were secondhand.

For the flower, I punched two 2" circles; cut around them with fringe scissors; embossed them with Ultra thick embossing enamel; and slit them to the center.  
Then I created a "center" for my flower with embroidery floss.

The background was inked with Versamark and white embossed.

Oh, and I unwound some circular office clips to create a bit of greenery.

Here are the inspiring challenges today:
