A Rose is Not Always a Rose

 Hello, to all of you Cheery Lynn Designs lovers out there!  On my project today, I wanted to show you how to take the small rose die, and use it to create an apple blossom (at least that's what I think it looks like!)  I used a patterned paper that had branches with flowers and leaves already printed on it, but I thought it would look great to add some dimension over the top.  I didn't try to line the elements up exactly to what was printed, but rather arranged them to compliment each other.  This really creates a big wow factor, in no time at all.  For the blooms, I used one layer from the smallest rose strip, and then used centers from the BAF2 embellishments.  They really look so similar to the patterned paper.


You will notice that our challenge is now starting on Sunday, and can be found right here on this blog.  The most current challenge, can always be found by clicking on the link in the upper right corner of the blog.  For your chance to win a $20 store credit, we would love to see your Christmas in July creations this week.  Be sure to link up by 6:00 pm EST on Saturday, July 6th.
