Card Creations & More Challenge #15

This was created for challenge #15. The challenge was to be inspired by a blogging friend. Well, Chery at Pink and Paper made this really cool Fluffy Flower Card that I just loved (make sure you check it out). I decided to do something similar. I actually used the same flower, which is from Forever Young. The card base is 5"x5" and made from black cardstock. I cut some glittery white cardstock at 4 3/4"x4 3/4" and some black and white damask cardstock 1/8" smaller to finish off the card base. I cut the flower at 4 1/2" for the outer layer, which I cut twice. The first large one is adhered to the card base, then the other one of the same size is curled and adhered to the first one. The next layer is cut at 3 3/4," then 3" and finally the smallest layer is cut at 2 1/4." I curled the rest of the layers, then used pop-dots to adhere them to give them even more dimension. I added a black and white button to the middle of the flower to finish it off. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on ivory cardstock and adhered right below the flower.

Now check out your blogging friends and be inspired. Head on over to Card Creations & More by C to link up your project. I can't wait to see how you are inspired!
