Make a Wish Peak

Okay, I'm back with a LEGAL peak of Make a Wish - our next Stamp of the Month at Paper Pretties.
IMG_7680 This little girl is just sooo much fun!  I used Basic Grey paper and I love this color combo!  I colored the entire image with copic markers.  The ribbon is from my stash and the flower - look -
Flower IRL it is so much cuter than this pic.  I am a hoarder when it comes to dp.  Well, not a hoarder really but I just can't stand to throw any away so I have ALOT of small dp scraps.  I was looking at them (this is the paper I used on yesterday's card for the squares) and all of a sudden it hit me - I could layer all of these little strips (cut from trying to get the stinkin squares the right size on the front of the card), staple them and make a flowah!!  I acutally played around with it a bit.  I first, cut the ends into v's so that it looked like twice the flower but then I decided it was too big, so I cut the v's off and curled the ends a little.  Then it didn't show up enough so finally, I sponged a little choc chip ink on the edges, put a button in the middle and I was thrilled with how it turned out - its so much prettier IRL like I said. 
Make sure you check out the other Prettie Girls' blogs to see their peeks for you!
