Inspired Flowers


Hi there!  I'm playing along with Muse and ColourQ with this card.  I was inspired by the layout of Laurie's card and also by the rolled flowers - Laurie always rocks them!  While I like the look of the rolled flowers I wanted my card to have a bit less bulk.  I trimmed each layer of these Purple Onion Design flowers and attached them with some glue dots so they still have a bit of dimension.  Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Gina K,(Calypso Coral, Pool Party Night of Navy, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers & leaves) Purple Onion Designs, (Very Vintage Greetings) WPlus9
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Fillable Frames #4) Papertrey Ink
Punch:  (Corner Rounder) Marvy Uchida
Embossing Plate:  (Linen & Canvas) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Recollections

I'm with you on the less bulk thing!! And anyhow I can't quite get those rolled flowers to work... Usually involves lots of bad words when they spring open again!!!
I love your flatter version and the colour palette is very pretty used in those proportions... Love the splash of coral/pink :0)
