The weather is horrible today...so it was the perfect time to create a card for the 2 Sketches 4 you challenge. I really like the way this one turned out. I used Basic Grey paper, Martha Stewart glitter, Life Journey's sticker, Michael's rub on and pearls. Thanks for looking...

Did you like the flowers I created for the challenge at Let's get Shabby??? well if you did here are the instructions.
What you need:
Glimmer Mist or Alcohol ink
Candle or liquid Fray
Here are the steps:
1. Determine the size of flower you want and figure out how big you want the petals to be. I made mine using around 4" of wire but it's totally up to you. The best thing to do is to play with different sizes.
2. Create a petal using the floral wire.
3. Glue the floral wire to ribbon and let it dry for at least 2 hrs. Make sure the wire is completely glued to the ribbon. After two hours or so cut around the wire.
4. Carefully "run" petals using a candle or use fraying glue.
5. Ink or mist petals with Tattered Angels glitter mist or Tim Holtz ink
6. Gather 2 petals, twist; then gather 3 more twist. Put the two groups together and done!
7. Now for the fun part...embellish you flower(s) with pearls, buttons, glitter or just about anything...

Oh only if we had the power to stop time...our children would always stay little, we would stay young (hmmm), parents would never part, grandparents would spoil us forever...I told my daghter one day "I don't want you to grow up, I want you to be my little girl forever" so now she goes around telling people that her mom told her she has to stay little...lol
