Happy Happy Hybrid

This is a 4 1/4" square card and Classic and Scalloped Square Nestabilities. I also used two sizes of the Scalloped Circle Nestabilities to cut out my larger Gerbera daisy ( but I snipped out just a few extra pieces around the petals after diecutting, so this large one is not exactly the die shape any more, but very close) and the center of my sunflower, (this one I made no changes to). Layer them together and you have this happy new hybrid! (there are so many varieties of Gerberas and now this looks similar to the kind that have tiny little petals in a layer surrounding the center) Flower is colored with Geranium Pink and Deep Yellow peerless watercolors. I used Shimmery CS for the flower so you can see the sparkle through the color), popped up on dimensionals, stem and leaf are made from SU! Olive grosgrains in 1/4" and 5/8" widths.


This card just makes me happy looking at it, and I hope it makes my friend happy, too :) I've gotten word that Melstampz is posting a gorgeous new flower project involving BEADS, can't you just imagine the awesome beauty already? let's go see it's up!!
