Handmade Flowers for Mom @ The Perfect Sentiment

What Mother doesn't love flowers? I know mine does. This week at The Perfect Sentiment we are challenging you to create a card with a Mother's Day sentiment and include some handmade flowers. You can use your punches, dies, Cricut cartridges. You can hand cut them from fabric or felt. You can even crochet them. Whatever you fancy. Just no premade flowers.

We are being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. Our random winner will receive 5 digital stamps of their choice from Robyn's Fetish.







I decided to break out my Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge for this challenge. It's appropriately named, wouldn't you say? I've had this cartridge since last year and have never used it. I used Flower #25 cut three times in three sizes one quarter inch apart.



I inked the edges of the petals slightly and rolled and shaped them until they looked a little more realistic. The leaves are also from the Mother's Day Bouquet Cartridge. All the paper used here is from Stampin' Up! ®. I used Pocket Full of Posies DSP, Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizaaz CS, as well as Pear Pizaaz ribbon.



Please take a moment to visit my fellow team members and see their take on this challenge:
