Allison's flower challenge inspired me to use this Close to my Heart set called Playful Petals. How great is her challenge? I'll bet that Allison included everyone on the playground when she was little. I mean, Flowers!...any company!...no limits!....Everyone can play with that theme. So I did. :0)
The colours came from this week's scs colour challenge (Soft Sky, Kraft, & black) I really like embossing black with the cuttlebug (swiss dots folder i love u). I first saw Janet do it (and she added shimmer mist, which I should have added here (slaps forehead!)
I did add some little baby bling (gems glued on with Crystal Effects) and added some glitz by drawing with a quickie glue pen and sprinkling glitter on. I outlined the petals and drew in some glitter grass:

Punch a round tab punch, lining it up where you'd like the curvy embellishment to be on your mat.
Slide your mat (kraft paper) under the under the curvy bit Adhering your mat to the cardstock underneath (soft sky).
It should look a little like this (though spaced how you like it, of course)
Embellish it if you like
