Friday Challenge #6 - Flower Challenge

(*See the post right below for the Top 3 &
prize winner from the last Friday Challenge)

Flower Challenge

Your host is DT member: THERESA.

For this challenge we are looking for 'outside the box' flowers (not stickers or plain silk flowers). We want to see your handmade flowers. They can be recycled, punched, die cut, crepe paper, quilled, ribbon, fabric (you get the idea) I know it's almost Halloween but what can I say I love flowers! You can put them on a layout, card, altered project or even make a bouquet. You can even make them look dead if you want them for Halloween, lol! ;o)


The 'Top 3,' as chosen by our Design Team, will have bragging rights with a 'Top 3 fave' button to display at their own blogs + everyone who participates will be entered to win the prize for this challenge. Prize = $25 gift certificate to shop at (woohoo!).

THERESA's Creation
Hi all you Quick Quotes fans, from Theresa! I don’t know about you but most of us have more then one hobby that we love and I Love to sew also! I don’t get to do it as much as I like but I have some projects I have to get done for gifts so I’ve been doing a little bit. And that’s what inspired me to make this layout, along with my tissue paper flowers made out of sewing pattern tissue papers (I got at a Yard Sale for $.25 for four patterns). Well I have to tell you I love the Houndstooth from the QQ Cherry Truffle line which is what I used on this layout! I’ve used these papers in quite a few of my projects and I’m sure it won’t be the last time, lol. I also used my Cricut and the cartridges I used are Nifty Fifties (Dressform),Forever Young (words Original & An (modified)), Lovely Labels (Scalloped Circle) and Cricut Sampler (You’re). Now my tissue paper flowers are made with my Grand Caliber and Large Classic Scalloped circles. I inked everything with the Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalk inks Bloody Mary and Midnight Confessions. I love these inks! Now on my paper doily I spritzed it with my Homemade Sparkle Shine. I also used our Beacon's 3-in-1 Glue to glue all the bling and flowers down. I hope this layout will inspire you to dig out your Sewing Machine too or maybe buy a new Dress, lol! Enjoy!

I was so intent on getting an entry ready for the challenge, I completely forgot to comment on these beautiful projects! My bad! Theresa, your layout is gorgeous as are the wonderful flowers you made! I love making roses but have not yet tried the one that you made. I will for sure now!
And Jodi, your layout and flowers are awesome too! I especially love that ruffled trim flower.
Fabulous job, both of you!
