Paisley Petals

First, I have to apologize for my delay - I have been down with the flu since December 31, and finally can get back into the game of life... without a misery throbbing headache.

So, while I was in the best of attempts of cleaning up my craft cave after the Thanksgiving holiday, I ran across Paisley Petals DSP - which I didn't really touch too much of.  I shifted through the package and was loving the designs, made a note and moved it to the table to touch again on when I was creating.

Tah duh, its time. I didn't know, but was quite excited when I noticed it was Bravo Burgundy in color... really? WHO USES THIS COLOR? ... its one that I think I have had since beginning of time, but barely use. So it was meant that I use it- RIGHT? New Year, new things... right? Of course!

I used the Ovals die from the Big Shot, and layers the two largest.I love the embossing folder Vintage Wallpaper, so of course it was close at hand. On the edges of the River Rock, I used my scallop trim border, which sometimes I have a love hate relationship with!  I used the itty bitty punch for the small flowers, and then the 5 petal punch for the large one. I formed the flower with distressing the cardstock with my bone folder. I used a few rhinestones for the centers too.  The bow from Lucky Limeade was an added bonus, since it was the perfect size.

Well, its a new year, a new angle of design for me.... I thought it might be on the vurge of out of my league, what do you think? 

Thanks for stopping by!
Hug the ones you love!
Have a great day!
