~~Special Thanks~~~

You every want to try something just to prove to yourself you can do it!!!  Well I decided to try to make a flower using things I have here at home!!!  (I did go get some material to make more in different colors just to make sure I had what I wanted).  I always love to watch videos on how others make flowers to embellish their projects.  With my fascination with crafts I always try to make things myself instead of always buying the pre-made.  The colorful part of the flower was cut with the die cut of Tim Holtz. Well come to think of it so was the organza!!  I did use a candle to melt the petals on the organza.  Inking to give it that depth look!! Oh and I found a use for all those left over leaves from doing all the flowers for the wedding!!  Use them on my cards and layouts!!!!

Each week there is a thread on the Cricut Message Boards with sketches to follow!! I used Sketch 3 from this weeks challenge!!  I think it follows pretty well!!!
A2 size card

Now I have a card to use when I want to thank someone for something they have done that is sooooo special!!!

I always enjoy reading everyones comments and feel free to ask questions if you have any!!!
