Wags 'n Whiskers - make your own flowers!

Happy Friday everyone! WOOHOO!!! And that means it's time for a new Wags 'n Whiskers challenge. This challenge is brought to us by the amazing Michele Roos, and she asked us to make our own flowers. I chose to use this adorable stamp called Gemma and Bella's Spring Fun. Aren't they just the cutest?! They're colored with Copic markers. Now I don't know if you know Michele, but she makes the most amazing flowers EVER! In fact, she is single handedly responsible for me buying three or four different sets of Nestabilities to try and make my own flowers. Needless to say, I'm still buying flowers! LOL! But I did dig out my blossom Nesties and used them to make the big flower. For the daisies, I used my Cricut.


Please be sure and pop over to Wags 'n Whiskers to see the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the design team. They really rocked this challenge! Then we'd love it if you'd join in on the challenge and create your own flowers for your project. And be sure and use a Wags 'n Whiskers image if you want a chance to win a new stamp! Thanks for stopping by to visit me today, and hope to see you back again soon!

Those kitty friends are adorable and I love the Cricut daisies - now, why don't they have those in a punch, since I don't have a Cricut! Beautiful coordination of the whole card, Sharon.
