Paper Roses

While trying to find some inspiration to get me back into the papercrafting mode, I stumbled upon the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge for the 1st week of March here. I thought it the perfect venue to use a paper rose I made following Penny Duncan's tutorial here. I threw in some scrapbook paper scraps, an embossing folder, a Verve stamp or 2, a piece of lacy ribbon plus a few pearls and this is what I ended up with. Not too bad for one of my first projects since the kitchen remodel.

While you are at Penny Duncan's blog, check out all of her flowers. You just need Make-the-Cut software or any program that will allow you to use your own designs for cutting such as SCAL or Funtime and a compatible electronic die cutter. She also has her patterns in PDF format so you can cut all the pieces by hand if you don't have a cutter.

Til next time...
