Bitten By The Bug 2-Flower

The challenge that started Jan. 23rd over at Bitten By The Bug 2 is to use the Bloom cartridge and make the six petal flower which is posititoned in row 4, key 10 on the overlay. And if you don't have this cart, use a six petal flower from another one. Well, I don't have this cart! Gasp!!! I know, what is wrong with me?! I'm not really great at making the flowers from the cartridges so I never bought it. But now, when they came out with the Flower Shoppe cartridge, I just had to have it. And I'm still not great at making the flowers!!! I can't seem to get the pieces that you twist done right. I did use Flower Shoppe to make these flowers. I used the flowers that are #'s 13 and 20 on the overlay. I also cut the leaves that are #'s 43 and 50. I cut two different sizes of the flowers so I could stack them. I glued one each of the two different flowers together and then popped the smaller size on top to give it the dimension. I used a big faux white half pearl for the center of my flowers. The bg designer paper is from DCWV-The Garden Party Stack. The flowers were cut from paper I dug out of my scrap bin. The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps set Think Spring. This is one of Mary's newest stamp sets. I love it!! Well, I love all of Mary's stamps!!! Hop over and check them out. I used some smaller faux white half pearls in the corner to finish my card. Hope ya'll like it!!!! :)
