Paperplay - Anything but a card


So the challenge this week on Paperplay is "Anything but a card!"

We are very kindly sponsored by La La Land.  Check out all the details and DT creations here.

The flower I made uses the Tattered Florals die by Tim Holtz.  I used an old French - English Dictionary for the petals.  I added some Papermania coloured gems in the centre.  I glued it together using glossy accents.  I needed the flower to cover a sticker on the packaging I was recycling!

Covered the other packaging sticker with Fancy Pants Designs - "Delight" collection patterned paper which I stamped on with a Waltzingmouse Stamps "say it loud" set.

 
 Close up of the packaging.
Fun! Tim Holtz Flower using an old dictionary - gems in the flower centre.
Mini Album close ups.

Made a mini meander album to co-ordinate.  The tutorial to make this little creation is on the SRM blog here.

Thanks so much for peeking.  Hope you have a great weekend.
