CBH June 21 - Yellow - L20 Silk Flower


This week's theme over on Created By Hand and Quietfire Creations is sun moon or Yellow. Can you guess which one I used BIG GRIN.

I also used one of the newest stamp quotes by
Quietfire Design - love it and so true.

This is another of my flower creations picked up on Pinterest. Polyester material flowers, heated along the edges to curl.... there seem to be several variations on the theme. One was using circles, another used scalloped strips. I tried both ways and they both worked well. I found the scalloped strip to work more easily. This particular flower was done with the circle method.

Anyway, to read more details and descriptions just click on card image. Enjoy.

And it fits for these challenges:
