PDCCC42 - Rolled paper flower

SIGH - green and brown are my favorite colors and they look so good on this card! Have you ever made a rolled paper flower? They are easy, quick and really cute!! The Play Date Cafe Challenge #42 inspired the colors while the sketch is courtesy of Card Positioning Systems Sketch #180.
Here's a closeup of the bloom - you can loosen it to make it bigger or roll it rather tightly (as I did) to make your bloom smaller - this leaf ribbon from May Arts is the perfect touch underneath - sometimes it is hard to decide how to attach it so I opted to staple it on with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher.
The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Cappella and Basics Kraft collections and the sentiment is from A Muse. The stamped stitching is from a Technique Tuesday stamp set and the bling is from my stash - Have a great day - it is still broiling hot here!
