A Blossom With Bling

I have been wanting to try out my new punch from Stampin' Up and one of this week's challenges at 365 Cards gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that. And with my love of glitter, rhinestones, etc., I was also able to work this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge blog into this card too :)

365 Cards Day 289 - Pretty Petals challenged us to create a large flower on a card using petals we created ourselves. At Cupcake Craft, Cupcake 172.....Don't Look at the Light was a challenge to use anything that sparkles, shines, glimmers, gleams, glitters, etc on our card.

Here is my take on these 2 challenges:

Recipe: cardstock - Recollections, patterned paper - Hot Off the Press, ink - CTMH, sentiment - My Stamp Box "Everyday Lines", corner punch - Paper Shapers, burnished velvet technique - Be Creative Tape Sheet & Glitter Ritz in Lilac Pink, Extra Lg Blossom Punch - Stampin' Up, rhinestones - Imaginisce.

I attempted to give the flower some dimension by curling each petal before attaching it to the card front. I really enjoyed making the flower and this card.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
