Flowers in December

Happy Friday! How about some flowers in December? This card is for my MIL. Her birthday is the day after Christmas and I always like to make sure we keep it all separate from the Holiday Hooop-la! I also like to make her a card that in far from holiday-ish.
Some pink and grey Authentique free-bird paper (mine is almost gone....can't say I've almost used up a whole paper pack ever) and the beautiful Fringed Perennial fit the job perfectly.
I love that I can make all these flowers turn into......
These beautiful blooms.  Wow, right!  They really don't take long to assemble, either.  I think the more you layer these flowers, the more beautiful they are. Plus, I love all the scored detail on each petal.
When I used this die-namic during teaser week, I turned the petals down.  Today I decided to give them more of a "cupped" look, so I gave them a slight curve up. That's easy to do, too.  I just use my bone folder and my finger to apply a slight pressure as I pull up on the petal.


Here's the finished panel on the card.  The sketch is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from this past week. I added some embossed hearts with a new folder I picked up from Hobby Lobby. 



 The sentiment was stamped on the Oval Tab die-namic. I recently added the CS about Mothers set to my stamp collection, so I pulled that out to make this card for my MIL. I am blessed to have married into a wonderful, caring family. Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the weekend.
