Paper Roses

Well, I must say I've been enjoying finding out how to create paper flowers. I was given a sample of the magnolia flower that's out there right now....I'll share my project with you when it's finished. In the process of it's completion, I went looking for other patterns. Today's card uses the instructions I found by Beate Johns (Fresh and Fun) - HERE is the tutorial from SCS and at the bottom of it there is a video (for visual learners) - which is what I watched for the instructions.

The card also uses the sketch from over at Creative Card Crew this week.

It's the middle of the week, I have the afternoon off - WooooHoooo - and the weather is wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by - Joan

Fabulous card, Joan. I love the papers and your flowers are gorgeous. I tried that tutorial too and mine didn't come out that nice, but I only had 5-petal punches. The positive/negative effect with your flowers is wonderful! Terrific job on the sketch challenge. So happy you could have some fun with us at the Creative Card Crew this week.
