You can make a flower out of anything


....well, just about anything.  I was messing around with some Paper Smooches stamps the other day, and for whatever reason decided that the duster from Squeaky Clean should really become a flower, or medallion.

This actually took a while to make since I decided that paper piecing was the way to go, so I stamped a gazillion dusters, some on white cardstock to use as bases and others on pink and green patterned paper for the duster bottoms and handles.

After piecing all the dusters, I adhered them to a yellow patterned paper circle and then added a gem in the center.



Since I wanted that to be the focal point, I tried to keep the rest of the card pretty CAS.  A little gray mist, some sequins, and a popped up sentiment.

I'm going to link this up over at SPARKS since it's an Anything Goes week.



Thanks for stopping by!
