So the moment I saw this week's sketch challenge MMSC71, I knew I HAD to play again as it featured a large flower type element in the design. In my never ending quest for inexpensive ways to use my Cricut with the SCAL software, I found this amazing site, SVG Cuts, where they sell awesome SVG files to use with the SCAL for not a whole lot of money. They have these whole sets of 3-D realistic flowers that I fell in love with and so I got the Fall Flower kit. Easy to use and they even have a video you can view on the web on how to make each flower. Just took me minutes to create - love it!
While the center of the actual flower file is realistic looking, because the sketch seemed to show a button in the center of the flower, I opted to go with one of the new brads I got when I won a give away over at Paper Craft Magazine. The brad is from Basic Grey "Stitched" (think covered button meets brad - yummy). The pearl and fimo flower flourishes are what was left from Prima Marketing "Say It with Pearls" Swirls Fimo Brown that I used on an earlier card. The green paper lace ribbon is Basic Grey "Ribbon doilies" (also part of that prize package). The sentiment label is from Cricut cartridge Accent Essentials. Sentiment is Inkadinkado "Just Saying" and DP is DCWV.
