This challenge was so much fun I made two last night - but the light was gone before I could take a photo. I haven't even had breakfast yet but I wanted to get this photographed - yup, I'm addicted!
The flower was inked in Barely Banana, then the rubber was sponged directly with Cameo Coral before stamping. After they were cut-out, I brayered the backs with Cameo Coral so the upturned petals wouldn't be plain. I shaped my flap using nestabilities and all the edges were sponged in Creamy Caramel. I used Yellow Stickles in the center of the flower, and it is attached with a pop-up glue dot.
I'm going to miss that ribbon, it's the last of a piece from Michele - I've loved using it. I closed this one with a piece of velcro.

Ooooh. Love this one! Great idea to stamp and then sponge over. I love that effect. I also like how you curled the petals a bit. Looks almost lifelike. Thanks, again, for sharing your creations with us!
