A Little Splendor

I am busy using up my discontinued CTMH Splendor paper, so I've got a few cards to show you today.  The first is for a sketch at Sassy Lil Card Sketches.  It's such a great sketch to work with!


The taught this lovely bloom at my flowers class on Saturday.  Such an easy and flower to make!  Basically you create a rosette and snip on the folds.  Makes a fun weather-beaten summer flower.

The second card is using the sketch at Cardabilities:


Another flower I taught that was really a hit!  It's just 8 crumpled scalloped circles put together with a brad.  Then you bring the crumpled layers up to form this shabby creation.

The last card I made was just for the fun of it because I had the paper out.  I love that cloud paper!
