EBTKS Challenge #18

It got me thinking again when I saw the challenge at EBTKS .
I thought about incorporating aluminum foil into part of a flower. Thus came this design.
For the flower, first I stamped Friend Definition Cling stamp onto white tissue paper.
 Then I used the Cuttlebug to cut out the different sizes of scallop circles. It's really easy. I love how the aluminum foil adds a little shine to the  flower. Other comments about this card are here.  It is a hot day here in my area, well, it's called SUMMER! I am not complaining about the heat! Enjoy your summer!

Hi Virginia! IF you're NOT complaining about the heat, CAN I?????? It is SO HOT! I can't even be floating around in my parent's lake (well, THREE FISH BIT ME!)!! Anyway, it's a PERFECT day to stay INDOORS and CRAFT (or ORGANIZE)..........I LOVE your SUMMERY CARD with the SWEET, flower that you designed. How clever you are! You've got such a nice design, too. You sure come up with the "happiest" cards, Virginia. You had a GREAT idea for this foil challenge. I'm heading over to the blog to see what it's all about. Thanks for the INSPIRATION! Love, Karen xoox
