Hi there!  As you know I’m working on a special order for a friend.  For that order, I cut out 10 of these crosses.  When I was taking the little pieces out of them I collected them on a plate to avoid a mess.   As a pile of the little pieces built up, they reminded me of a pretty flower blossom.   I know, I know, call me crazy.

 

With this idea fresh in my mind out to my studio, I went.  I cut out a decorative stem with leaves.  I cut out a base for my focal point and then I put it all together.  Next, I added a dollop of hot glue to the area that I wanted my blooms to be.  While the glue was still hot I sprinkled on my bits and pieces to form the flowers.  I let it set a minute added a little more glue and sprinkled on more bits.

I think this is a great way to use up all those bits and pieces.  What do you think?

Now, let’s look at the background of this card.  In person, it almost looks like velvet.  I absolutely adore this new color Gorgeous Grape.  Lemon Lime Twist looks so good with the grape color, it’s so bright and cheery.

From now on when I take little pieces out of a thinlit I will save them in my empty embossing powder jars.  This card was so easy to make I think I will be duplicating it often.
