~Miss You Petals~






"--Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and must include a die-cut flower made with a non-flower die."



Using my Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 3 Die, I made a humongous flower for my card.
*Papertrey Ink Communique Curves sentiment,Papertrey Ink Grunge Me splatter,Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 3 Die,Fiskars crimper,BoBunny Country Garden paper pad 6X6,Basic Grey Lauderdale paper pad 6X6,Authentique Genuine paper pad,Versamark ink,Whispers embossing powder,Spellbinders classic circles,Georgia Pacific white*


After cutting out the petals with my die, I ran each one through the crimper to soften them.

I bent the edges in and sewed each down except the one that is lifted.



My colors were inspired by The Play Date Cafe PDCC127.





Hope you're having a fantastic week so far!
