Hi flower ! x

Hello last night I felt the need for some crafting therapy and so I grabbed one of my fav paper pads from cosmo cricket and got to work using the fab new sketch over at unscripted this week x

After taking about half an hour choosing which papers to use (so many beauties in this pad !) I cut my panels and inked the edges up with some sepia ink to soften the hard lines a little.
Once adhered to the card base (bazzill) I set to making a flower. I have seen these flowers all over blogland and adore the shabby chic look of them so I decided to have a go as a change to the scrunched flowers I have been making recently.

They are so easy to make, I diecut the circles with my bigshot and nesties circles then distressed the edges. then I scrunched them up and inked with the sepia ink again.
Then I just layered them up and cut out a couple of leaves to finish it off.

I added the "Hi friend" using my sizzix take it easy alphabet set.

I hope you like it - I love the colours of these papers and I'm always happy when I use them and with a sketch like this I can use the scraps so I don't waste any !
