This is for the Sketch For You To Try July 2011 challenge by Jen del Muro: http://iheart2stamp.com/2011/07/02/july-sketch-for-you-to-try/
I attended a crop with my local group on Saturday (intending to work on some cards). The hostess had these cute brown polka dot napkins...the texture was perfect...so "fabricy" but light and scrunchable). So...I made a flower out of one! LOL. The other ladies in my group always think I'm a bit crazy, but when inspiration strikes...
Anyway, I cut two layers each of three of the Blossom Spellbinders Nestabilities, scrunched and layered, then topped with some paper shapes and brad from MME. I love it. Papers are BG Porcelain, and I think go like they were made for my napkin flower. ;)
The sponsor for the sketch this month is My Favorite Things (one of my favorite companies), and so I used a sentiment from their Great Outdoors set and cut it with a die from their First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics and stamp set.
Tucked some Sizzix leaves behind the flower and added some flat-backed pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.
You can see a close up of the flower after this image in my gallery. Thanks for looking!
