Spring Flowers

Good grief!  What a beautful Spring we're having!  I don't think I've even seen so many beautiful blooms all at once.  The pollen count in Kansas City has been nearly off the charts so I've been enjoying the Spring weather from INSIDE my house ... mostly on the internet looking at all of the great crafty blogs.  I've seen a lot of people make their own flowers out of circles and thought I'd give it a whirl for this weeks 2 Sketches 4 You challenge. 

I turned the sketch upside down to create my card. 

To make the flower, cut out 9 circles.  One circle is the base, so put adhesive on it and set it aside.  Then take each of the other 8 cirles and fold the sides in so that they overlap and come to a point at the top.  These are the petals.  Now place each of these on the circle that you set aside to form the flower. 

I like how the flower turned out using double-side paper.  Give it a try ... you can experiement with stamping designs on paper, adding glitter, spritzing the paper ... the sky's the limit!
