Flora For You!

Welcome to the merry month of May! The Dream Team are challenging you this month to a "Flora and Fauna"theme! Considering most of the Dreamweaver designs incorporate both of these in the huge variety of stencils, you should have no problem playing along with our challenge this month! As usual, link your creations at the end of theDream It Up! blog post, or at the end of our posts where it says, "Add Your Link"
Here's what I've been playing with this week...

Here's what I used to create this project:

Bazzill Cardstock
Authentique Patterned Paper
Beacon Adhesive Zip Dry

Here's what I did to create this project:

Soap back side of stencil and place on sticky paper
Apply blue embossing powder
Remove sticky paper from stencil 
Apply green embossing powder
Trim around flower edge leaving a green margin
Create card base in a tent fold
Trim patterned papers as shown and adhere together as shown
Tie bow and wrap tails around back of patterned paper
Attach paper and bow to card base
Adhere flower to card base, tucking it slightly into ribbon

Here's the rest of the team playing along today:

Be sure to check them all out and leave these ladies some love!  Thanks for stopping by today, I'll see you again soon!
