Party On

Today's PTI challenge is to create embellies for a friend and a matching card! I am going with the pom pom flowers that have been so popular of late. I have seen these type on quite a few different blogs and the challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to try them out. I punched out 9 scallop circles, centered each with a button, and then crumpled away. By using double sided PP it creates a fun colorful flower. Now onto the card. You can't go to a party without a dress :>) I used Jennie's latest sketch from StampTV and embossed away! Prima flowers create the ruffle at the bottom of the dress. I added a few dimensionals in the center of the dress then glued down each side to create an arc shape on the paper pieced dress.
Do you need a laugh? I stuck the flowers on the acetate as I made them. When I went to take the aqua flower off to put on my card it would not budge!! I had to rip it off...I guess glue dots that have "permanent" on the box are really permanent regardless of what they are stuck to - see, you learn something new everyday!
