hi all
heres a card i made using my old sugar nellie "windwept" stamp,i love this cute stamp and the wind is howling outside so it inspired me to use this image,i have been playing at making my own flowers ,its a bit time consuming but they are so effective and easy,i cut 6 scalloped circles,then scrunched each one into a ball,opened them out and secured them all together with a little brad in the centre ,than i scrunched each layer into the middle,when all 6 layers are scunched up open them out to form a flower shape,decorate the centre with a gem and hey presto a matching flower.
