Basicgrey Challenge #36 and Design Team Call

Basicgrey Challenges is looking for some new design team members.  To apply you had to submit entries for challenges #35 and #36.  Challenge #36 was called Flower Power.  They wanted to see flowers in our entries.  All DP is from Basicgrey Lemonade.  Stamp is one of my favorites and is from Inkadinkado.  The image is colored with colored pencils and the paper behind the image was debossed with CB Swiss Dots folder.  Beaded vines, cream flowers and centers are Prima.  Pink ribbon is unknown from my stash.  The pink flowers are homemade. 

I cut 4 - 1" circles, spritzed them with water mister and wad them up.  Flatten them back out and run a brad thru the center.  Pull each layer up to the center around the brad, nice and tight.  Once all the layers are pulled up then you can push them back out a bit to get the look you want.  After they dried I spritzed with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  Next time I think I will spritz with the mist before threading them on the brad.  Another option for sparkle is to put some glue on the edges of the flower and sprink some glitter on.  I'm going to try that on an upcoming creation!  These flower are also cute made with a scallop punch.  Sadly my scallop punches created a flower the size of a real carnation.  I didn't feel like cutting any smaller with my cricut though you could do that too.

And finally a peak at the inside!  I used a MS border punch

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak at my creation!  How exciting it would be to be selected as a design team member!  I love BG papers and have since they first came out.  I've still got some pieces from the original lines.
