You're the Bestest {TCP Tuesday 177}

Good morning. It's another TCP Tuesday and Julie has challenged us to create our own roses with seam binding. I dare you to laugh at mine! The first one I did looked great (you will just have to take my word for it) but then I decided my card needed different a punch of color so I switched to orange. Well for some reason, this one didn't turn out so great. I even made a second one that  - well, frankly - looked just like this one! So you might want to follow Alma's video how to rather than look at my effort!

I stamped the bunny from the Kick Some Grass set and then cut it out allowing one of the flowers and the bunny ears to fall outside of the box. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the stamped panel, curving it around the bunny ear. I added a couple of beads to one of my stickpins adhering with Crystal Lacquer so they would not wiggle around and then stuck them through my funny looking flower to finish things up.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp, Fancy Pants dp, Seam Binding (mango), Kaisercraft pearl, May Arts stickpins, Stampin' Up ticket punch, Copic Markers

Copics: Bunny-E50, E51, E53, C1, C3, C5, C7; Grass-G40, G82, G85; Flowers-Y21, Y23, Y35, YR12, YR14, YR16, RV00, RV32, RV34

All the details for this TCP Tuesday 177 challenge can be found on Alma’s blog. As always, there is potential for fame (Pick of the Litter) and/or fortune (Pick of the Week). Good luck to you - I can't wait to see your projects!!
