Forever Friends

This is my Design Team entry for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges #67-Make Your Own Flowers..  This is something I have been practicing lately so I was very glad to see this challenge.   I didn't do any coloring.  I don't think I have ever made a card that didn't require coloring before.  It certainly made the task a whole lot  easier!

I used a couple of different dies to make the flowers.  The largest flowers were made from a Cuttlebug die.  I cut out the flowers, and edged them with ink.  Then I sprayed them pretty heavily with water and punched holes through the centers.  After stacking the different sizes on a brad I scrunched them up and let them dry.  I sprayed them with a little glimmer spray when they were dry.  The roses were made with a Dienamics die as was the daisy-like flower.  The leaves were cut with a Sizzix die and the small sprays with a Martha Stewart punch.

The paper is from K & Company.  The gorgeous silk ribbon is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. The sentiment is from Digi Doodles Shop and was cut out with a Nestabilities die.
 I am entering this in the following challenges:
