Gettin' Twisty!

Hi everybody!
It's that time again....time to get Twisty!

This week we want to see your cards, pages, 3D projects, etc., with some pretty flowers

WAIT!!!! The Twist is....your creation can't have roses or rosettes on them

Look what I did....

I used the Flowers, Daises #2 die from SU! I cut the medium sized one (cut 2 of them) in half. Then I punched a small circle for each and run them through the Big Shot with the dots embossing folder. I didn't like how that looked so I found some chocolate pearls and added to the daisy centers. The stems are very simple. Just start at the top with the brush end of your SU! marker, drawing down very lightly then the closer to the bottom you get, the harder you bare down to get a gradual line.
My "grass" is some scrap I had (it's from a retired SU! Christmas pack). I cut each blade and then inked the piece with crumb cake using a sponge dauber. The twine is from Wal-Mart and the button is one from SU! I inked the edges of the white card stock with So Saffron ink...it looks darker than that.
I didn't add a sentiment this time. Yep, that's rare for me. I just didn't want to add it to the white space.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Please check out what the other Team members created at Twisted Tuesdays!
Come on....you know you wanna....
Come play with us!

***The Pink Elephant Sweeties are also in a flowery mood! Find their challenge here:

What a happy card - love those flowers (I may have to get get die now) and that button, but the best part is your fun grass that you hand-cut and inked. I love that you made that part totally on your own (and with Christmas paper). Fun, fun, fun!!!
