BBTB2/Bloom

FLOWER POWER
Our talented and sweet hostess this week at BBTB2 is Jeri. She always has such great choices for us to design with and this week she asked us to design from the BLOOM cartridge and to use a 6 petal flower. As an additional bit of challenge, Jeri says we have to show a wee bit of dimension on the flower. . If you do not have that cartridge (I don't) you can use any 6 petal flower from any other cartridge. . I went to my Walk In My Garden cartridge. One of my faves. I think every Cricut cartridge is one of my faves. Please join in on our 6 petal flower challenge. Mention on your blog that you have entered the BBTB2 flower challenge, and make sure the upload is a new project. Here is my card:

This is a side view so you can see the layering of the flowers. I cut two for each flower, the base flower is flat on the card base but the second layer has been popdotted as well as the flower center. I added a bit of bling with the jewel centers. The ribbon came from a gift box and I just had to add it to the fray.

The leaves are a Martha punch. Everything has been embossed which seems to occur on every single card I make. The sentiment is from Cutting Cafe in the "You're In My Thoughts Greetings, Inside and Out". You can see that set right here.
Thanks so much for visiting and if you leave a sweet comment, you know I will appreciate it so much. Please consider entering our flower challenge. We'd love to see your creation.

Incredible, Carole. This looks like a piece of art that should be hanging in a museum. Are you sure it's a card??? The colors are gorgeous.
