TLT - Make Your Own Flowers Amanda Style

It's Tuesday and we're back with another GREAT challenge by our Guest Designer, Amanda!  This week you need to create something and incorporate your own hand-made flowers!

I'm trying, once again, to build my stash of cards, so I created two Magnum cards - one says "Diet starts tomorrow!"; the other says "I shouldn't have eaten the whole lasagna."  Aren't those quotes the funniest?  Love 'em!

Both cards are very close to identical using Basic Grey DP, Dark Chocolate, Kraft and Spring Rain card stock from PTI.  One has a flower created from leftover pieces from THIS flower and edged in Chai Tea Dye Ink.  It was tied off with a button and Chocolate Baker's Twine.  The other flower was created with another PTI floral blossom die and edged with VersaMagic Jumbo Java and finished off with a beautiful striped brad.

The cards were designed using The Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS101) - such a GREAT layout!

Be sure to check out all the details at the challenge blog (HERE); and then join the fun!  And remember, you are not required to use an LCI image to be eligible to win!

Thanks for popping in; hope you have a great week!

Hugs, ~M.
