Handmade Flowers

I am sharing two cards with my handmade flowers. There are so many styles of handmade flowers, some are made of ribbons, paper, tissue paper...and now I have seen them even with zippers! I was actually inspired when my daughter Stephanie bought this pair of Anne Klein shoes two weeks ago. It was a STEAL ( only cost $45 US!) .She can't wait to wear them for the new school year!
Now I'll be on the hunt for colorful zippers! Do check CARDS blog  if you haven't already. So much inspiration! The following card was also featured in CARDS blog. I used dictionary paper and Basic Grey paper and run them through my Spellbinders.

Here's another one I made a little while ago.

 Happy Friday! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for Etsy Inspired Challenge. If you like environmental  or nature theme, this challenge is going to be a fun one!
