Limelight Papercrafts: Bouquet of Flowers

Today I have something special to share that I made for the Limelight Papercrafts project challenge. It is exciting to be part of the DT for the month of May and the theme this month is BOUQUETS. We could create a bouquet of anything... with a matching card.

I immediately thought of a Streamer Flower tutorial Carolyn King shared on her blog back in April. I stamped the flower image from the April Unity KOM on the streamer prior to running it through my Cuttlebug with a scallop circle die (hard to see in this picture, but that is the hint of yellow you *might* see, lol!). I also recycled some of that pretty tissue paper Mandy wraps each Limelight Papercrafts order (don't we love the careful way she wraps the orders to ship.... and the tissue is lime!). I thought the flowers could use a little hint of green so added two layers to each flower. The sticks that are holding the flowers are just grilling skewers I picked up from the dollar store and tied on some lime green ribbon on each to act as leaves.

For the card, I used some of the same Jillibean Soup patterned paper that I used on a card I shared yesterday, Old World Cabbage Stew Spring Onions. The colors are so springy and I am loving the green/yellow color combo. This was a real fun project to put together and now I have a dozen flowers for future projects!

I hope you have enjoyed this little floral project and be sure to check out what the Design Team over at Limelight Papercrafts came up with...I'm hoping there is chocolate somewhere along the way :o)
