Scrapbook Stamp Society - Handmade Flowers

Good morning all!  We are kicking off a brand new challenge over on the Scrapbook Stamp Society blog, and our theme is 'Anything Goes + Option Handmade Flowers'.  FUN challenge!!!  I'm pretty new to the 'handmade flowers' thing, so for this card I made the only handmade flowers I know how to make!  I know, not much of a challenge...but for the reminder post next week, I'm going to try something new!  I'd love to see what handmade flowers are your favorite!  For my card I used this sweet image which you can find here.  I'd love to know what you think!

The Copics I used are: skin - E000, E00, E4, E21 & R20; hair - E08, E19, YR14 & YR18; shirt - BG000, BG01, BG05, YG09 & R22; pants - YR23, Y21 & Y32; shows - W0, W3, W5 & W7.

For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, paper by Webster's Pages, dies by Spellbinder & LaLa Land Crafts, and Martha Stewart punch.  The sticker sentiment is by 3 Bugs in a Rug, and reads 'life is either a darling adventure or nothing'.  I love this quote by Helen Keller.

I made the flowers by punching different sized circles in different paper and used scalloped scissors to cut a spiral to the center,  I then rolled (starting from the outside) toward the center, and secured the center bottom with a dab of glue.  Next time I will take pics of the various stages. Super easy, and I like the look:)

Thanks for taking a look, and please be sure to head over to the Scrapbook Stamp Society blog to check out the other amazing DT work and to share your own.  Have a great week!
