MC June/14 - Blossom Tool - HB - Some People Come In To Our Lives
I came across this newest tool by Marion Smith Designs "Bloom Impressions Tool" which I thought was a good idea... the only problem is it's waaay too expensive for what it is. So I decided to see what I could come up with to mimic the end results... Click on card image to see the gadgets I used BIG GRIN

I love the way the flower turned out and it's HUGE... 3" dia and over 1.5"h, so needless to say this is a hand delivered type of card. Hope one of my friends says they want it - hint, hint.

I'm using one of the newest Happy Birthday sentiments and a quote stamp from Quietfire Design.

OOoh I really enjoyed reading how you made this gorgeous creation Yogi! The flower is super and reminds me of the peonies in my garden. You are very inventive and I did smile when you used the Tupperware melon baller to help shape the petals - way to go!! Such a beautiful and creative card.

Thank you so much for entering the OSAAT challenge this week, lots of luck.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx DT
