OWH Sketch #70

Good morning everyone! This Sunday's sketch challenge from OWH was a fun one. At first I pondered what I would use as a focal point and then I remembered I had purchased die cuts to make a big flower which I have been wanting to try for sometime. 

Here is the sketch:



 and here is my creation:

The DP is from DCWV's Linen Closet; the cardstock is Gina K Designs Turquoise Sea; the leaves cut with a Sissix die cut from unknown cardstock scrap; Spellbinder's Posy Patch dies from Heartfelt Creations; and some brads from my stash. I like that the flower has dimension, but will still go into an envelope and look good when it comes out of the envelope at its destination.

Here's wishing for a wonderful week for you. Don't forget the OWH MEMORIAL DAY BLOG HOP is next weekend! Blessings,
