scrunchy birthday

Morning all well it is as I start to write this post anyway, whether it will be when I publish is another matter.

I saw this fab tutorial on Sassy 's blog for scrunched flowers and decided to have a go, and I'm not sure it was meant to be but I did it anyway. Let me explain what I mean. The tutorial suggested you needed 3 different sized punch flowers, I had 2 different but went out and bought a third. I started to punch and all was well until I used one of my original punched the middle size and it broke , I tried all sorts but there is no way I could get it to punch so my flowers re made with large and very small flower punches, but I think they still look ok.


The flowers I randomly coloured with the same colour promarker I used for my sassy image boho chick which is available from funky kits, I know there is bits of white showing but I quite like it as I think it makes it look a bit tatty. They are held together with brads.

The rest of the card is fairly plain though I did use velvet ribbon and a small daisy ribbon for accents and an embossed happy birthday greeting as the card is for my niece from my mum, hope they both like it.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Stamp something-use punches
Totally gorjuss-flower power
4 crafty chicks-handmade flowers
creative craft world-use 3 or more brads
Birthday sundaes-embossing wet or dry
sketch saturday-layout
simply sassy tutorial challenge-use one of the tutorials
passion for promarkers-pink and brown/blue and brown(does deep pink still count?)
