Now, I'll admit I was SO excited to give this a try! A stamping friend had just shown me how to make a flower with a scallop circle, spiral cut, yada yada. Well, shucks, I just could NOT get it to work! Then, I wanted to try a tutorial from splitcoaststampers with a fringe flower...looked dreadful!! Good grief! So, I came up with this weird-not-really-a-flower-but-I-am-calling-it-a-flower-anyway-card! Funny thing is, I made this at least 2 weeks ago, with the intention of trying again, but time got away from me...that's life, right? So, let me tell you what I used to create this card. Everything is from Stampin' Up! My card base is basic black, with a layer of tempting turquoise. I ran my real red card stock through the big shot with the vintage wallpaper impressions folder. I stamped the flourish from Elements of Style in basic black on whisper white card stock. For interest, I offset those layers in different directions. I added a strip of basic black, embossed with perfect polka dots and lined with real red grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment is from You're a Gem (duh!) and I added a bright glimmer brad. My "flower" is constructed by loops of tempting turquoise grosgrain ribbon (back in this year's IBC!!!) and a bright glimmer brad in the center. I finished it off with a ring of basic jewel rhinestones...love those!
