Blogger's Challenge

This week's blogger's challenge is to CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) from ourself.
Well yesterday Sherill Graff from LatenightStamper's was looking for ideas for table centerpieces for a presentation at her library. So I pulled out this idea that I made last spring with the Ginger Blossom designer paper that was everyone's favorite.
I made the flowers again using the new designer paper Walk in the Park that is in the current Occasions mini catalog.


It is hard to see but the vases have rub-ons from SAB last year.

The flowers are made by layering paper punched with the scallop circle punch and the other smaller 3 flower punches. I used wire and a bed to make the center of the flower.




I can't wait to see what my friends from the blogger's challenge have done!
