The Flower Challenge #77 - Reminder

You still have time to make a card for The Flower Challenge using your latest stamps/dies.

I am really loving the die cut sets that allow you to build your own flowers.  I used one in the initial post and now I have another one.

This one is the Garden Rose from Altenew.  It's so much easier to start with colored cardstock when that's the color you want your flower to be.  I just darkened portions of it with ink for dimension and did the same for the leaves.  Altenew's Garden Rose embossing folder (from their CYL set) seemed destined for the background.  The sentiment is from Waffle Flower. 

The rest of the Design Team has their latest stamps or dies on display for your perusal.  We hope they inspire you to make a card for our gallery.
