Best Friends

Hi Friends,

I thought I would try out this scrunched up flower. I have seen it a few times and don't know where it first originated. I made this one with cardstock sprayed with water to soften it and then scrucnhed it up. The punches I used are the medium retro flower punch and the large one. I also coloured the edges with some ink.

Hello Marion, such a beauty!I love orange color, so rich and happy! Your flower is magnificient, and the punched border is delicate and perfect to enhance your bouquet.
I also had a look at your cute Tilda birthday card for PattiJo, Very nice. BUT, most of all, it is wonderful to see you back,feeling better, and on your way to complete recovery. Take care.
Much HUGS, and love.
