5 Challenges - 1 Post!!

And today especially because my husband took my car to work this morning so I can't go anywhere (it's a good excuse to stay home a create!)

and I used the sketch from Caarvarks





I used patterned paper from Kaiser Craft and American Crafts. The flower were created by punching two different sized flower out of tissue paper. And then I inked the edges and glued them all together using a glue pen. I thought the layers kinda looked like the layers of the cabbage.
