Tiny Dots


Hello, my friends!  Today I'm playing along with LeAnne's colour combo at the Paper Players and also linking up to Unity's Friends With Flair blog hop.  If you look closely at the centre of the flower you can see that it's paper pieced with Blushing Bride paper and then I punched 1/16" holes from the Pear Pizzazz paper for the dots.  They were certainly a bit fiddley to stick down but I got them in place eventually. 


Any big plans for your weekend?  I have a growing (and long neglected) list of odds and ends to do around the house so I'm going to attempt to cross a few things off of that list.  Maybe. I'm afraid the siren call of the Craft Cave may prove to be too much to resist...


ETA:  Doh!  I missed the Paper Players deadline!!!  :(

Don't you just HATE missing deadlines!! Especially with a card that had you fiddling with little dots for the center! But the dots were with it as you created such a jaunty and cheerful little flower!

Oh it must have been a p.i.t.a. to stick down all those dots, but the final project is totally worth it. Love the rounded corners too :)
