Flower Flourish

For today's card, I combined this week's Sketch and CAS Challenges from SCS to create another CAS card with the white-on-white technique.  Originally I made a white lily for my focal point ... and it looked really pretty on my card, but it is coned shaped and I just couldn't get it to sit nicely on the card.  A little frustrating after spending so much time making the flower from punches.  Sometimes it happens and I had to move on ... so I added a felt flower that I bought at my local $1 Store ... love the green bling in the center and actually, the color looks so fresh with the Certainly Celery flourish and white backdrop.  Hope you like.

Here's the sketch:

"Flower Flourish"

Paper:  White cardstock (C.C. Designs); Certainly Celery (SU!)
Accessories & tools:  Big Shot, Birds and Swirls embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Fanciful Flourish die (Cheery Lynn), felt flower ($1 store), glue, and dimensionals

I ran the small panel through my Big Shot with the Birds & Swirls embossing folder and then mounted it my white card front, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.

I cut out the flourish die from Certainly Celery cardstock and glued the main stems to my front panel, leaving the rest of the flourish free-flowing.  I mounted my felt flower to the flourish, popping it up to add more depth.
