Funky flowers

This is my favourite of the Shapes and Shadows cards we made at Saturday’s class - I just love the colours.

I stamped each of the flowers in a different colour and cut them out, leaving just a little white showing. The centres were stamped separately and punched out using the ¼” circle punch. I made the hole in the tag using my new Crop-A-Dile™ - not essential but it’s new so I just had to use it! The ribbon is tied up with a tiny piece of linen thread. One of the flowers is popped up using dimensionals. For the word “Happy”, I inked part of a stamp using a marker.
