CCEE1244 - Faux Pressed Flowers

Another month, another CCEE hostess.  This month Vicky Gould is our hostess on the CCEE Blog.  Her challenge today is a technique challenge -- Faux Pressed Flowers, the tutorial for which is on Splitcoaststampers.

My card is pretty simple -- a Rubbernecker stamp with lots of flower stems and some Prima flowers.

I embossed the pale blue cardstock with a Sizzix Snow Flowers embossing folder then added some big brads to the flower centers.  I thought it needed to be dressed up a little bit, so the ribbon, pearls, and stickpin seemed to be the way to go.  The card pretty much put itself together!

If you'd like to play along with the CCEE gals, we'd love to have you add your creation using Mr. Linky on our blog.

What a welcome splash of colour and summer cheer - in spite of the Snow Flowers, LOL. That actually looks like a great folder to use - it's pressed the flowers in really well.

Love your flower color choice, brads in the center and that awesome embossing folder, Lois!
