a "lollipop" flower card

Good thing I finally checked my blog...this was to have posted yesterday for Creative Clear stamps! I thought had set it to pre-post but obviously didn't.....the challenge this week was to create any card BUT an A2 card....
so I pulled out the huge circle scalloped die cut from Sizzix and made my card base, ran it through CB folder.
Since the "lollipop" flowers seem to be really "in" right now...I watched several videos and decided to do a large one for the front of this card......seriously......, I don't think I'm a fan of these flowers...or at least not mine!
They ARE a great way to use up paper scraps! I have made about a dozen....you'll see some on a few cards I'll be posting....maybe it's just that they are new and different and I'm old and set!!!  LOL


Cardbase is SU's Sage Shadown with edges sponged in Always Artichoke...dp from scaps (and that's what I like about these...use those scraps!!!)

I havent made as many cards as I had dreamed... BUT...my stampin room is almost clean!!! I will proudly tell ya I have gotten rid of FIVE 13 gallon trash bags from my little "stampin/office/tv watching with laptop" room....well, I told you I was buried in there.. LOL

feeling organized and clean n fresh!
Have a blessed day tomorrow - so much to be thankful for....

ps...please dont be shy...what tips are out there for these flowers

Hi Linda,
This is very classy. I love the colours and the rosette is so well put together with the beautiful sentiment as a focal point. It's magnificent.

Great flower card, I think it looks nice and I am not brave enough to even try but like that it uses scraps :o)

Hey, I could use some help down here digging out...my stuff is a MESS! My *plan* is to clean it Saturday, we will see (I doubt it will happen before Christmas break though!)

Wow, that's a lot of trash! I'm not sure of these flowers either...I'm don't know how they are made, haven't read anything about them. I do love your card base and colors though! :}
