Layers, Scallops & Thanks

It's a busy day for me, so I only have time to share
one card today.....

This one is lots of fun scalloped layers and
one mighty big handmade paper flower.

I love using kraft cardstock with these types of colors.
It's such a versatile neutral.
The paper flower is made from 2 types of handmade papers,
the off-white with specks is 'tobacco paper' which I have
had for years, along with the peachy-pink paper.
I guess that's using some BOO, isn't it?!
The periwinkle blue in the flower is good-old-fashioned tissue paper.

I made the flower using the Dahlia die from Spellbinders.
There are about 21 layers altogether.
I also used the Labels 4 for the sentiment.
The other scalloped punch is from Fiskars.
The sentiment is from Unity.

Thought I would enter this over at the
Paige is calling for unique, handmade flowers.

In the meantime, you still have until
midnight EST tonight to enter this week's
challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.

Oh...one more thing...
I have just one more complete set in stock
of the 'Ippity Triple' deal
from yesterday's post.
You can read about it here.

Have a terrific day!
