SC273, CC263, IC224

Yep I did it again -- another puffy flower. Are you sick of these yet? You knew I was going to create one of these when you saw the sketch didn't you? I guess I am getting good at making these flowers. I was able to throw this card together in 17 minutes.


If you need the Puffy Flower Tutorial it is HERE. And here is a link to all the Puffy Flower cards that I have created so far.

Several of you have asked me whether I have tried mailing these cards. Well the answer is no, but I am going to try. I ordered the padded envelopes and the treat cups from the Occasions mini. I think that these flowers will fit in those cups. I am going to mail the card to myself to see how this works. I'll let you know the results.

Does anyone know what's up with SCS? I thought that they had fixed everything, but I think things are still a little wonky over there.

This card is for the Color, Sketch and Inspiration Challenges. The colors are Dusty Durango, Pretty in Pink, Creamy Caramel. I bet you are wondering where the caramel is. Look closely at the dry embossed flowers on the Durango layer. I colored the centers with the Creamy Caramel marker.

Gotta run to the Library -- boy I will be so glad when school is over. Thanks for stopping by!!

Gorgeous card- I'm not sick of your puffy flowers yet!

(But you aren't allowed to complain that I use my heart punch too often!)

17 minutes!?!??! Crazy! And why quit making these beautiful flowers? They are so wonderful! I have been keeping my eye open for a circle punch, but the one I found was quite small. I will just have look for a bigger one :)
