Swirly Thanks

Hello Stampers ~ today I have a Swirly Thanks card for you.

At my workshop on Friday I was sharing how 2 of the cards I had designed used the Swirly Bird bundle.  I talked to my customers how versatile this bundle it.  One of the suggestions I had was to use the circle swirls to create mums by using a yellow and red.  I decided to give that idea a try.

I started by stamping the solid circle using Crushed Curry.  I then stamped on top using the swirl and Cherry Cobbler.  I did the same with the smaller flowers but used the flower from Bunch of Blossoms for the Crushed Curry layer of the smaller flowers.  I then went looking for some leaves that reminded me of the leaves on a mum.  For the little flower I could not find one so I used the flower from the Swirly Bird stamp set.  For the larger flower I thought the leaf in Flower Patch looked a little like a mum leaf.  I stamped the leaves and now just need to add a sentiment and my twine.  I stamped the sentiment and used the coordinating punch to cut it out.  I added the 2 colors of twine I had used.  My layer was mounted on my Cherry Cobbler card base and my card was complete.  Here is my creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I have 2 ladies coming to do their Christmas cards.  Then I will be working on more cards for this month as well as cards for our Bingo night.  Have a Sensational Sunday and give Swirly Thanks a try!
