Copper Flowers

Flutterby Wednesday - FBW160 Open Challenge
Speedy the Cat's Friends - #61 Make It Sparkle and Birthday Swap

Flutterby Wednesday is back after a week off.  Not only do we have everybody's favorite Open Challenge {just remember your butterfly, fairy or angel}, but we also have a sponsor!  Through the Craftroom Door will be giving away a one-year .pdf subscription to one lucky participant.  Check out the FBW Blog for all the details! {wink}

I have used the flowers from Brick Wall by Mark's Finest Papers.  I colored them with a Cameo Coral marker and a clear stardust glitter pen for some sparkle.  Well, that combination gave these pretty flowers a copper tone that matches the Crisp Copper Kettle paper perfectly ~ what a happy surprise!  {squeal}

 Thanks for fluttering by and I hope to see your creation at Flutterby Wednesday this week!

Stamps: Brick Wall and Just Dandy by Mark's Finest Papers

Never ever thought of doing copper flowers, but now I will! Beautiful card Michelle and that "squeal" at the end gave me a great giggle!
