Sensational Flower Saturday.

Happy Saturday to everyone! 
Hope you are all doing well. For today we are working with flowers over at Sugar Creek Hollow. Not just any flowers but, home made flowers. For my card I have made two flowers, I think they turned out great. 
Here is my card, rather simple design with the image from SCH- Get Well.  For the image I did some light coloring and sponging.  My paper is from Papertrey and it is full of shimmer and shine. I love how my flowers turned out. I used tulle and ribbon. I cut out about 10-12 layers of the tulle and left about 4 pieces as the base.  Then  folding each piece in half so it looks like half a circle. That half, I would fold in half again so it looked like a cone. I would layer those on my base. Over lapping as I would go around the base.  I am a very visual person so  if any one is interested  I will do a post on how to make them.
  My ribbon was sewn and gathered to make a flower and I used a rhinestone as the center.  This is my second card this week  with the easel fold, which is so much fun and easy to do.
I just might make some more of my cards this way. 
Thanks for stopping by Don't forget next week is the blog hop with the new images from SCH . Tracy has some blog candy on SCH to celebrate the One year anniversary and next week  I have some of my own blog candy to give away.  Please  Check out the rest of the girls at Sugar Creek Hollow and our guest designer. I know they have awesome hand made flowers to show you!

Heide, I love how soft these are! With your blue background they make me think of clouds floating in the sky. This get well card will certainly cheer someone up.

I must say, this is such a unique flower design. I have a ton of tulle and would have never thought to use as you have. Lovely embossing and just a simple elegance about your project this week.
