PTI Anniversary Contest: Think Big Challenge


Papertrey Ink is releasing large scale sentiments every month this year!! In honor of their big sentiments, the Anniversary Contest for the day is to make a project with something big on it. Find more details here.
I decided to make a big flower out of tissue paper. I folded a strip of tissue paper in half a few times until it fit under the Large Scallop Border die. Then I stamped an image from Damask Designs randomly on the tissue paper before rolling and scrunching it up to make the flower. I put a few stitches in the back to hold it all together and then added a button to the middle. I was hoping it would be a little bigger than it is and I suppose I could have added to it, but it's much bigger than any embellishment I normally put on a card, so I figure it works!

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday! Thanks for stopping by!

mmmm, look at that BIG beautiful flower, just gorgeous! Btw, funny thing, I just looked at your description on blogger of how you pronounce Anika, and I'm glad I saw it because I was thinking it was aNIka, emphasis on the middle syllable, silly me ;)
