The catalog-focus challenge is to use any flowers except stamped flowers. Button flowers, felt flowers, die-cut flowers, punched flowers, crocheted flowers... you get the drift. Well, I have an illness. Stampin' Up makes it so easy with all the flower options, especially the Vintage Adornment flowers and Ribbon Rosettes from the previous Occasions mini. And although I had a ton of ideas for this challenge, I just couldn't use these pre-made babies. Well, I could, but I didn't. While they sit within reach of me, I have to make the flowers. Hopefully no one will beat me with a wet noodle.
I created some rolled Concord Crush flowers to create a clean and simple (CAS) card, using the Clean & Simple fall to layout #132. It was really fun to use stitching to create the stem and vein in the leaves!
