Simon Says - make your own embellishments

Photobucket



This week at Simon Says, we have an awesome challenge for you! If you head to the CHALLENGE BLOG, you will find out that the challenge this week is TO CREATE YOUR OWN EMBELLISHMENTS!!

I decided to make my own flowers, so I set off to You Tube to find some funky flowers to make and I found this one:

You Tube Video Tutorial

I used my SU flower punch and an EK Success retro flower punch. I punched the flowers out of the same DP that is on the card but you can't tell after I sponged all the edges. Anyway, here is my flower I made (10 layers!!!):




And here is my card:

I used SWEETHEART BIRGITTA from CC Designs and coloured her with Copics. The DP is from a DCWV pad I've had for a few years, and the CS is Elegant Eggplant. The ribbon is a sheer white from May Arts. You can get all of this at Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!

Remember, if you join us this week, you get a chance to win a $50 SPREE from SIMON SAYS STAMP SUPERSTORE!!!! Wooooooooo hoooooooooooo!!!! So, what are you waiting for?? Go check out the DT samples and come play with us!!!!!
