Denim Delight

I worked on this card to submit to Stampin Sisters in Christ . Challenge 74 Psalm 23. Thought I would try something I have never attempted with making my own flower. Seems whenever I buy an embellishment its not quite the right color and I struggle to use it, so after watching some tutorials I made a modified version of the Tim Holtz flower (this one is only 5 layers to allow it to lay flatter for mailing). It was exciting to be able to make it from denim DP to match the background I was using. Of course I needed some leaves and was stumped for a while until I ran some hearts off on my Cricut and cut around the edges then used the McGill stylus to shape them...all in all I am happy with this attempt - its always fun to be challenged and learn something new. Sometimes I spend so much time looking at everyones blogs being inspired it feels like my head is going to explode when I finally sit still and get a card going. Thank you for looking, I always enjoy feedback. Right after adding this I noticed a challenge at Mark's Finest Paper Speedy's Challenge 41 for handmade flowers :) so I added this to that challenge also.

Used my Cricut, McGill stylus and mat, ribbon, CS, Nestie, MS Daisy edge punch, and a stamp from Stampabilities. If you want to see the tutorial on making this flower I suggest you go to You-tube and watch the various tutorials they have. I watched Pinkaboo6691 and found her easy to follow.
