Handmade Bloom

Hello all and happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Today's card was one I created for Kim Wilson's challenge from last week. I've completely missed the dead line, but I loved the inspiration photos so much I still had to play along. You can check out her latest Off The Wall Craftiness Challenge and huge prize here.I was really inspired by the white flowers pictured on the wedding cake. So, to create my own I used the Beautiful Blooms II #2 Die Collection. Die cut the three different sized blooms from white cardstock, cut slits between the petals, crinkled each layer up real good and assembled the layers together using glue dots. Then embellish with a button in the center. Can't you just see these blooms recreated in so many different colors. Such fun!
Attached the blossom to a black mat, cut from Mat Stack #1 Die and then impressed with the Argyle Impression Plate. Punch small holes on either side of the mat, strung black satin ribbon through and tied a bow. Finished the card off with a sentiment from Delighful Dahlia.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a great start to your week!
