I opened the front door last night and found Toby  on the porch. I was going out for my last walk around the yard to call for him before going to bed. He is a little freaked out and dirty but seems to be alright. As soon as I get over being happy to have him back home I’m going to kill him for scaring me to death. LOL! Thanks for all of your concern, sweet comments and support.

I made this project for the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge.  Our featured artist was Kim aka Luv Flowers. Here is a link to Kim’s card that inspired my card.

I love making these floral sprays on my card fronts.  I chose to use the coral pink for my flowers to match the little flowers in the designer paper. I used the soft blue cardstock for the foliage instead of green as I think it creates a much softer look.

I wanted to show the three different 5 petal blossoms that I used to make the flowers.  Even though they are not matching flowers they vary enough in size that they work well being layered with each other.


The largest flower is distressed slightly less to create the base of the flower.  I distress the second layer a little more and distress the smallest layer to create a tight flower center.


For these smaller flower petals I use a fairly small stylus.  I go around the outside of each petal to curl them into themselves and then finish by pushing down in the center of the flwer.


I layer the flowers so the petals are offset from each each other to create a natural looking flower.
