Crazies Are Blooming All Over!!!

Mercy, our Crazy4Challenges hostess for June, challenged us to use a paper flower we created ourselves on a card.  I enjoy trying different styles of flower making, so this was right up 'my alley'.  I used an image by our sponsor of last week, Stamp N Plus Scrap N.  I used a MS border punch, my piercing tools, my Copics, and sponged the sky/background in.  I used a ribbon 'tie' as the 'leaves' behind the flower and added 3 brads.......an 'easy-peasy' card for sure.

Now be sure to visit the Crazies to see what the rest of the fab team is doing.  Be sure to welcome our newest Crazy, Maria Bell.
