Get Sketchy/Play Date - CAS Crinkled Coral Flower

This card uses this week's Get Sketchy #59 layout, colors from The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #50 and the Inspiration word from Splitcoaststamper's CAS Challenge - Crinkle.  Apparently I am hooked on big poofy flowers these days!! 
The Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die cuts out flowers so quickly with the Cuttlebug.  I run the flowers through the crimper until I could peel them in half and put the soft side up - the leaves were cut with the Perfect Petals Die Cut set from Heartfelt Creations for Spellbinders. 
Patterned paper is Basic Grey Basics in white; center strip is made from Tim Holtz Tissue tape; Zva crystals; ribbon from SU! and sentiment from A Muse.  I think these flowers are so beautiful but my husband doesn't get it at all - he always says they look like something that I've crumpled up and meant to throw away.  MEN, what do they know?!

Love the poofy flower! It's gorgeous! Randy gives me that look when I buy something with peeling paint! But I give him that look when he gets excited about fishing gear. So it works out even in the long run. Just smile and nod, smile and nod...
