Raspberry Suite Challenge #17... { wish big }


Woohooo!  It's a raspberry suite challenge with Dawn McVey! I *heart* these colors and gleefully pulled out a gorgeous swatch of fabric by Amy Butler that my homegirl, Traci, gifted me.  As I was dancing around my craft room waving my fabric (just kidding!) I was remembering {this post} by Cathe Holden about making kanzashi flowers.  I found a great tutorial {here} so I thought I'd give the flowers a try.

the challenge:

my card:


Aren't these flowers pretty?  OK, I am no kanzashi master but, these are fun to make and something new to try in the flower making department.  I used 2"x 2" fabric squares to make each petal.



I used fabri-tac as the adhesive on this flower.  Love that glue!



The dimension on these flowers is fabulous!  Too fun!  I will definitely try these again.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I love your company!

Supplies:
Fabric: Amy Butler
Paper: Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Papertrey Ink
Punch: SU!
Craft supply: embroidery floss, vintage button
