I had sat down at my craft table several times throughout the week, and nothing was coming to me....ugh! I was beginning to get really nervous thinking I wasn't going to be able to create anything to turn in this week. Then last night, this vision came to me....yep....no joke!
For the bouquet, I took a length of cardstock and rolled it up, gluing the bottom. From the top, I cut strips going down. I rolled up the strips to make paper tendrils. I cut the leaves using the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge, inked them then adhered them in the center of all the curled up strips and adjusted them until I liked the way they looked. I cut different size flowers also using the Create A Critter cartridge. I inked them and also embossed them using the swirls and swiss dots folders. Curled them up a bit, added some gems, then adhered them.
