Ornament Punch Flower

WooHoo, it's Friday and time for another Bloggers Challenge, #120 already! Today's challenge is a sketch. Lots of possibilities! I immediately thought of a large flower when I saw it. I'm also wanting to show my ladies different ways to use the ornament punch so this an opportunity for that purpose too!

I put a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock through the Big Shot with the Damask Texturz Plate then punched out eight "petals" with the Ornament punch from the Holiday Mini, then punched out eight more "petals" from Rich Razzleberry cardstock. After adhering each Melon petal on a Razzleberry petal, I built the flower by attaching four petals to a 1-3/8" cardstock circle. The second layer of four petals was added with Dimensionals to give depth to the flower. The center circle (1" Circle Punch) of Crushed Curry cardstock was put through the Big Shot with the Small Dots Texturz Plate, distressed a little on the edges and added with several Dimensionals. This was fun to build!

The card itself is Crushed Curry cut to 9" x 6-1/4", folded to 4-1/2 x 6 1/4" (it had to be larger to accommodate the large flower!), which will fit an A-6 envelope. This has a layer of Rich Razzleberry and then a layer of a print from the Razzleberry Lemonade pack. Another print from the package forms the vertical section which is then enhanced by the yummy Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. Two medium Circle Fire Brads are added to that.

The sentiment is from the wonderful Teeny Tiny Wishes set of 24 expressions. This was stamped on Crushed Curry, punched with the Word Window Punch then layered onto a Melon Mambo Modern Label Punch and attached with Dimensionals. Dots are done with the White Signo Gel Pen.

Here is the original sketch for today's Bloggers Challenge #120; isn't it a fun one?!
