The Flower Challenge #61

I've only recently started following The Flower Challenge and it's their 5th Birthday!
I missed the earlier four. 

 This month's challenge is to use a shape so I opted for a shaped circle card. I thought
about using Wonky Rectangles as the card base but I've misplaced the set and "wonky
rectangle" doesn't seem like a familiar shape. And it's been a while since I've made
a shaped card so a circle is what I went with.

For my flower, I chose Altenew's Fantasy Floral die and covered white card stock 
with their Painted Fantasy washi tape before cutting out the pieces. It was a bit 
challenging but I finally assembled a bloom that I was happy with.

Altenew's Dotted Swirls Debossing die gave the background a bit of texture and the
card base was cut with MFT's stitched circle dies. I adhered the bloom and leaves
that were inked with The Stamp Market inks. Since we're celebrating a birthday,
I gold embossed a Pinkfresh Studio sentiment, and finished off the card with sequins.

 Happy 5th Birthday to The Flower Challenge! Here's to many more years of floral fun!

  5. Donna I love this creation of yours so much, I am hear to ask if its okay to use this same idea of using the washi tape with my flower dies.
