Floral SFYTT

Ok, I have to admit (and this doesn't happen very often), but I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out!!! And honestly, I wasn't too keen on Jen's SFYTT sketch this week. It looked a little wonky to me in the sketch drawing (but of course, Jen's sample and the other DT girls' samples were fab as usual - I just had no idea what I would do with the damn thing). But I sat and stared at it for a few days and then on Monday evening I printed out some digi papers from Zoe Pearn's new Note to Self kit - which just might be my new favorite Zoe kit EVER!! - and pulled out one of my old favorite Verve sets, Petals and Stems, and just started playing around. Here's what I ended up with:


See? Pretty cool, huh? Thanks to my good friend Michelle, who finally pointed me in the right direction to Dawn's tutorial on how to make those fun poofy flowers that everyone's been doing lately (I'm always late to figure that stuff out! LOL). The flowers are slightly big for the stems, but I think it still works, right?

Your "poofy" flowers are awesome, and I don't think they are too big for the stems. It is a great design element to highlight the flowers, and you did such a great job on them! Best, Curt
