Wishing You A Beautiful Day!

Happy Sunday Friends! I have a project to share with you today. I made this for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer Challenge. This time around, the lovely Ladies over at MFT would like you to get Die-mentional. One of the best ways to add dimension to your project is to use your MFT Die-namics. If you would like to play along too, you can find all of the details here. As you can see, I had quite a good time with my Rolled Rose Die-namic! I used my Cuttlebug to die cut 20 or so roses from card stock and then I got to rolling! They are attached to a Styrofoam ball (that I painted a rosy pink first) with corsage pins (found these in the bridal department at Michaels). The leaves are from the Sheltering Tree and Leaf Trio Die-namic. The sentiment (from the MFT set Framed Greetings) was made with the same colored card stock as the roses and some patterned paper from the Fine and Dandy collection from My Mind's Eye. These pieces were cut out with the Die-namic Layered Label Die. This project started with one of those biodegradable pots that you use to start seeds in and then you can put the entire pot in the ground when you are ready to plant it. This one won't be going in the ground! Here is a close up shot of the top of the bouquet.

Here is a close up of the sentiment. You can see all of the texture the little planter has. It's a wonderful Kraft color too!

Thanks so much for visiting with me! I'll be back tomorrow with my version of the My Favorite Things Sketch from Wednesday! Until then...Toodles! :D
