LLWWC31 - Make Your Own Flowers

It's Wednesday and you know what this means! I have TWO challenges for you today! Please click HERE to see the Paper Pretties Challenge / Birthday hop.

Welcome to another La La Weekly Wednesday Challenge!

Our hostess this week is Kim!
This week's challenge is MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS

Before I get to my card, I just wanted to thank all those who participated in our challenge last week AND used a La-La Land Crafts stamp. Please remember that in order to qualify for TOP 3, you need to use a La-La Land Crafts image. If you do not have any of our stamps yet, you can start your collection by purchasing one or more of our new digi stamps! Digi stamps are now available in our online store. Awesome news for anyone who prefer rubber... these digis are now in RUBBER!! You can find them HERE.

Here is LOTUS sitting pretty for The Pink Elephant Challenge 59 and Creative Card Crew Challenge 46 (Going Dotty).

Here's the sketch from The Pink Elephant:

I've made these flowers in the past (2007) using the Three For You punch (SU). I use my fingernail to rough up the edges and as the petals soften, it begins to separate. I push the top layer up and push both layers in the middle to crease it a bit. Very easy to do once you get the hang of it. I  used the larger hole punch on my Crop-A-Dile to create the centers for each flower. Then I added a drop of glue to each center and added micro beads.

You can see my original flowers HERE on Splitcoaststampers.

Here's a closeup of the flowers that I made today:

Thank you for stopping by!
Be sure to go visit La-La Land Crafts and join in on the fun!
I can't wait to see your handmade flowers!
