Purplies Design Team Challenge

                Welcome to Our Design Team Challenge
Kari had given us the challenge of making a flower. As you travel through the Purplies Design Team Blogs you are going to see some amazing flowers and the recipes to make them. I hope your as excited as I am, cause I love love love making flowers :)
     My favorite flowers are the ones that look beautiful but are easy peasy to make LOL... which the brings you to mine (hehehe)
This flower is sooo easy to make.
Flower Shoppe Cartridge
2 <sunflower> @ 3 inches
1 <sunflower > @ 2 1/2 inches
1 <scallope> @ 2 inches
glitter glue and 4 pearl picks
ink pads ( I used red,white and ditressing brown)

               Before you start to assemble your flower now is the time to use your ink pads. I used the Tim Holtz Distressing Ink -vintage photo first on the edges of all the petals, then went over it in red. I took a white ink pad and just dabbed all the cuts.just to break up all that pink. now your ready to assemble your flower...
                Stack flower petals on top of each other ( biggest petal on bottom) stagger the petals , roll the scallope cut up, be sure to glue it as you go or it will loosen up and come unraveled ( I know from experience )
after the scallope is completely rolled up, glue it to the center of the sunflower petals. I rolled the petals of the sunflower around the handle of a small paint brush to give them a little curve.
                I added the pearle picks to the center beneath the scalloped flower. Then I added glitter glue to the edges of all the petals so the would catch light ( I love glitter)  and show a little diminsion.  There you have an easy flower. I hope you like it.
             Thank you for stopping by my Blog today . Be sure to stop by my DT sister's Blogs and see their beautiful flowers as well.
                                Have A Blessed Day
