Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere - SCH Sensational Saturday

Happy Saturday!! Did everyone make it through this past week? Wow, what a wild week both here and around the world. I have been riveted by the news of the earthquake and subsequent Tsunami in Japan. Life can change in an instant. On that note, I'll lighten things up just a bit!

Our challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to make your own flowers! I made this lovely flower as part of a class, and it involved using double sided paper, several flower punches, water to spritz and crinkling the paper! Sounds like a lot of steps, but it was fun, and I really liked the result so I made it into a card! The wonderful sentiment is from Sugar Creek Hollow, and it is a quote from Henry David Thoreau. If you would like to join us this week, upload your card HERE.


Card Details:
Stamps: Quote by Thoreau by Sugar Creek Hollow
Paper: June Bug by Basic Grey; Basic Black by Stampin' Up
Accessories: several SU and EK Success punches; black ricrac; brad

Nancy, this is such a fun, bright card! The colors in your flower are very cool. Even mother nature would be jealous. I've always loved that quote. It's so true.
