#TGIFCTD03 - Flower Patch Card

I like to do stamping challenges, but I don't always have them done in time, or they aren't quite what the challenge was supposed to be about, or whatever. Anyway, today I actually got one of the challenges done...in time...and it meets all the qualifications posted by those who are issuing the challenge. And I like it! So here it is:

Supplies: All supplies are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted:
Stamp Sets: Flower Patch
Inks: Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black (Archival)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pool Party
Accessories: White Tea Lace Paper Doily, Baker's Twine White, Stampin' Sponge, Paper Snips,  Dimensionals, Tombow Liquid Glue


Here is the challenge. You choose at least 4 of the following:

And these are the items you can use if you want, but no other supplies. You know, the basic stuff you keep in your pantry:

I really enjoyed doing this challenge. It made me stretch my imagination to make it look how I wanted. Here are a couple other views. 
 As you can see, I  used the baker's twine, knotted up several times, to create the center of the flower. I really like the dimension that it adds to the flower.
This is a different kind of fold on the card. The Pool Party base is just a single layer of 
5-1/2" x 4-1/4". Then there is another layer of Whisper White that I sponged with the Pear Pizzazz ink to create a mat for the final top Whisper White layer. This is the layer that is folded (on the side) that you open up to write your greeting. I know that there is a bit of fussy cutting, but we were not supposed to use the Big Shot dies to cut out the flowers and leaves.

So, there you have it. My card for the TGIF Challenge blog: #TGIFCTD03

Hope you like it!
