Handmade flowers at Sugar Creek

Talk about being late....this is twice today that I am just getting my cards into a challenge just before closing. I usually have my card for Sugar Creek Hollow in way before this, not even sure why I am so late this week, but I am. I love playing in their challenges each week and this was the week to make handmade flowers for our projects. I used the image "Bee Tile" for the first time, coloring with SU markers and copics. I used a Sizzix impression plate to create an embossed background for the tile. My flower was made by stamping a Hero Arts Manuscript stamp a couple of times on ivory card stock, then punching with a SU scallop punch which I cut every two to three scallops after running through my crimper. My center is a corduroy brad from Stampin' Up.

There is a blog hop at SCH tomorrow and I hope you can stop by. Tracy and the ladies always have such beautiful things and I know you will love it. Hope you all are planning a great weekend. Take care and talk to you soon.

Paper: GinaK chocolate brown, Kraft, Ivory
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia, SU markers, Copics

What a great card and that flower is beautiful, lovin' the inside as well. I know what you mean about running behind on the cards, I was that way this week, hope it was the weather or because my DD was off and we were having fun. Have a great day, hope you are feeling better.
