4 CCC#84 - FLOWERS!!!

Happy Thursday! How is your week going? Mine has been spent mostly in bed or on the couch - nursing a nasty chest/head cold! make matters worse, central Alberta is in the midst of yet another MAJOR winter storm with the possibility of up to 1' of snow! ACK...My son spent the day home from school yesterday due to a massive migraine - a sign of what's to come?!?

Enough gloomy talk - are you ready for a fun, PRETTY challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks?

Leanne is our "hostess-with-the-mostess" and her favorite thing in the whole wide world is FLOWERS! So, yep, you guessed it - show us some flowers on your projects! You can make them, stamp them, buy them, etc. There are a gazillion tutorials out there on how to make your own flowers and so many companies sell dies to whip up gorgeous flowers, lickety-split - which is what I did *wink*

For my card, I used my new flower die from My Favorite Things:

I used the 2 smaller flower petal dies and all 3 center dies to make these gorgeous flowers! Any way you stack these ones, or any paper combination you use, these flowers always turn out beautiful!

Stamps: Verve; Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black; Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Rosy DP (MME); Accessories: Vertical Sentiment Die - MFT, Flower Die - MFT, butterfly punch - Martha Stewart, pearls, brads, glue dots, dimensionals

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Wags 'n Whiskers - say it with flowers
 Lily Pad Cards - Flowers
 Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Partytime Tuesday - Flowers
Flutter By Wednesdays - Open (with Butterfly)
