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.

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.
