Pretty Paper Flowers...

HHHeeeeeellllllooooooooooo out there!

Welcome to the weekend!  Yahoo!

It's Saturday - so it's time for another 'Just Us Girls Challenge'.  This week's 3-D challenge comes from my team mate Mona Pendleton.

Here's her challenge:

JUGS4
You MUST see her video -- she makes it look so effortless, and what a nice job she did on the video itself, definitely worth it to watch!

I don't have any of the Nestabilities blossom dies, I only have the old "Nesting Flowers" one, and it worked ok, but I would much rather use the ones with more 'layers' in between, I think.




I brayered my tissue with 3 different colors - Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, and Berry Sorbet.

Cut out the various sizes with my nestabilities, and got to work.

I can't decide what it is, but something isn't sitting right with me -- if you have any suggestions, let me know, ok??

Be sure to check out the rest of the team's projects today -- they are no doubt, terrific!


Thanks so much for stopping by - hope that YOU will play along with us, can't wait to see your flowers!!!  You could be the next Chic of the Week!~  A BIG CONGRATS to Gwen Snater!!  Gwen is our Chic of the Week for the JUGS 3 challenge!

Be sure when uploading to use the keyword JUGS4, and link up your project to the Mr. Linky on the challenge blog!!


Have a super day -- we've got some early Halloween events planned for the weekend -- should be fun!

So bright & BEAUTIFUL Tracey! I don't think there is anything missing here! Your tissue paper flower looks gorgeous & I love all the other detail! The ribbon stem & leaves add such a nice touch as well as the cute butterflies :) TFS

Are you kidding, Tracey? This is GORGEOUS! I love your flower and the ribbon stem and leaves is a great idea! And the butterflies soften it and make it more dimensional! Great job on the project! Love it!

Those colors you chose are perfect together also. IN LOVE...seriously! Oh and how about that ribbon stem WITH leaves? CLEVER, you are! Beautiful design, my friend. I'm envious ;]

Tracey this flower turned out absolutely gorgeous! I love the mixed colors! I had originally planned to try that then realized an ink CUBE with a brayer takes a LONG time so I went with one of the few full sized ink pads I had. I LOVE your combo of colors and layout. I'm the "DUH" in the group - it took me a moment to realize the ribbon was the STEM LOL - Great idea - I was originally looking at this on my phone so I didn't pick up on what the green ribbon was - SORRY DUH! :-)
