SOS #53 - Flowers

Welcome to challenge 53 over at Shopping Our Stash. This week we ask you to use flowers on your card! That's right! You can use anything floral-related -- flowers, roses, sunflowers, gardens, vases, potted flowers, etc. You can use paper with flowers in the design or use flowers as embellishments. Hey, take this opportunity to use up some scrap paper and make your own flowers! LOTS of options here, kids!

Here's my card:

 This card is NOT what I set out to make. Nope. However, as I pondered my options, I spied that punched flower in my UFO pile, and a card was born. Here it is again at a slight angle so you can see the white-on-white embossed background on the panel:

This card is all remnants and UFOs, except for the base. I'm quite pleased with it, actually. :)

I'm sure I have another flower card in me, so I may be back later this week with another sample for you.

Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash and find some unloved flowers of some kind. They can be paper flowers, stickers, floral patterned papers, flowers made from scraps, whatever! Then make a card and come back to Shopping Our Stash to link us up so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!
