PTI February blog hop

Greetings !  Now that all the adhesive has dried I call post the card I made for the blog hop . I wanted to make a flower that looked like the flower in the inspiration photo ... I used tissue paper that I inked , die cut , scrunched up and finally layered to get this look... Took forever for the adhesive to dry . Thanks for stopping by .

Scrap paper card

Still crafting away the day . I've built up a huge pile of scrap pieces of paper so I am challenging myself to use them on current projects. The PTI grab and craft challenge fit for this , I grabbed a die I could use for smaller paper pieces and a patterned piece left over from another card I made last week . Now if I could make 50 cards using scraps I might put a dent in the pile . Also playing along with Addicted to CAS ... Bloom challenge . Thanks for stopping by.
