Flower Cake - SNSDC67

This week's challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is to use 3-D flowers as an embellishment.  This can be a layered digi stamp flower, a paper flower you made from dies, or any other type of flower that has dimension.

I chose to add some Prima flowers to the Flower Cake digi stamp.  After coloring the image with Copics, I cut it out with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  I double matted the image panel.  Then, using a 1/16" hole punch, I punched a hole through the center of each of the flowers on the top of the cake.  The prima flowers I used have stems so I pushed them stems thru the holes in the stamped flowers and taped the stems to the back of the image. I popped the image up on pop dots. I chose not to put a sentiment on the card so that I can use it later as either a special birthday card, a bridal shower card or even a wedding card.  I love options!!  :)

I did a little interior decorating as well.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Recollections (teal, pink)
Patterned Paper:  SU
Stamp:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Stamp (Flower Cake)
Embellishments/Tools:  Flowers (Prima), Bling Flourish (Recollections), Copic Markers, Fiskars Threading Waters border punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities (Petite Ovals large and small, Petite Scalloped Ovals large), Ribbon (Michael's), Zutter Round-it-All 1/2", 1/16" hole punch (brand unknown)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown #111 - Sweet Treats
Paper Pretties Monday Challenge #52 (PPMC52) - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge #219 (PWC219) - Square Cards
Divas by Design #48 - sketch
Papertake Weekly - Spots or Stripes (my cake has stripes and there are dots in the patterned paper)

My big accomplishment for the week was getting my scrap space organized!  Whew!  What a job!  However, it is so much easier to work in the new space because there's more room to spread out as I'm working.  I'll try to post a few pics soon.  Except for hanging some pictures, I *think* we're unpacked.  Yippie!!

Thanks for stopping by today.
