Holly Jolly Flowers

Welcome to the CCEE Stampers Challenge.  For the month of May, Hostess Joanne has some interesting challenges this month, we are going to concentrate on tools and embellishments rather than themes.
The challenge for today is to use at least one embossing folder, brad, and a self-made flower on your card/project.  

For my card  started with the embossing folder, once embossed I sanded the raised areas to reveal the white core. I die cut the flower petals and shaped them before adding the brad. Finishing the card with a die cut sentiment and gems stones.

Sizzix Poinsettia die, Cuttlebug Holly embossing folder, spellbinders dies, Hero Arts Holly Jolly stamp set, brads, gems.

Time to pop on over to CCEE Stampers and see what the others have created.

Have a great day
