Fun Flowers

 Happy Saturday, crafting friends...

This is the first time I am participating in Freshly Made Sketches and here is this week's sketch as my starting point .

Here is my take:

My color combo is Bashful Blue, Melon Mambo and Real Red. The Real Red flower is cut from felt using the Fun Flowers Bigz L die.

I have wanted to make use of vellum paper to be layers for a flower focal point so that's what I decided to do for this one. So, next comes 3 layers of vellum flowers. I really like the effect it makes, like it is fluttering in the wind.

The strip of scalloped trim border is from a piece of Melon Mambo card stock. And then a bow and sentiment finished it off.

I hope you enjoy your weekend. Thank you for peeking in today.
