365 Cards - Day 289 - Pretty Petals

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday with 365 Cards! Today's challenge is called "Pretty Petals" and Pam wants to see you "create a large flower on your card using petals you've created yourself (any way you want)." To make mine I used the SU! Bird punch...the inner leaves are from the wing and the larger leaves are the bird's body (slightly trimmed). The leaves are just the bird's body. The flower center is a snowflake punch and it's all held together with a glitter brad. Oh and I used my embossing stylus to draw veins in the leaves. FUN!!

Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Winter Holiday Sentiments
2. CES challenges - a traditional Christmas
3. Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Anything goes
4. Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
5. Digi Doodle Shop 's Best - nature
6. Incy Wincy Designs - Christmas + brads
7. Lollipop Crafts - Happy Holidays
8. One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas cards using traditional colors
9. Paper Issues - Holiday Madness
10. Phindy’s Friday challenge - clean and simple

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Holidays!
