SDC34: Flower Power

It's time for a new challenge at the Stampotique Designer’s Challenge blog!

This week Gez is challenging us to use flowers in our creations - using stamps from any stamp company!  I'm a flower-o-holic, so this challenge is 'on the money' for me!  Be sure to take a look at the fabulous Design Team samples to juice up your flower power!! LOL!

Here's my floral creation using a card fold we had fun with at a recent crafty night!  (Thank you to Bella Mio who provides a wonderful tutorial on this fold!!)  Instead of incorporating a bunch of flower stamps for the challenge theme, I thought I would switch things up and use floral paper to accent the beautiful sentiment and accent stamps from Stampotique!  I have to say that I am certainly not used to cutting so many angles, but I love the result!!
