SOS - August Challenge

This month's challenge over at Scrap Our Stash is to use flowers on your page. I love adding flowers on to my layouts, and lately I have been making a lot of them. They're definitely easy and cheaper than going out and purchasing some. Here's my layout and to make the flower I just used 2 circle punches (different sizes) and a brad (or in my case, an American Crafts button). For the base of the flower I used a 2.5" punch and for the petals I used a 2 1/8" punch.



And, here's a close-up of the flower:




Basic Grey's "Olivia" patterned papers, Prima pearls & American Crafts Thickers
