Isn't that a huge blue flower!!! I decided to make up my own flower. I used the Mega Elongated Leaves punch to create this big flower. I love to use the card stock from Joan's Gardens; it is the perfect weight for shaping the flowers. The Flower Tool Kit was used to shape each petal. I really like out the stamens turned out. I used the Martha Stewart Cosmo punch and punched out one blue flower and cut each petal in little narrow strips down to the center of the flower. The coral center is three large punched suns that were cut and shaped into a stamen. The coral stamens were placed inside the blue ones. To give it a different look, I used Stickles right on the end of the points of the coral stamens. I think it looks "cool". I hope you can see that in the closeup picture.
A coral Nestabilities lotus pendant was die cut to place under the flower. Ivory Mega Ferns were punched for leaves. The sentiment is from the JustRite "You Inspire Me" stamp set. Three coral Martha Stewart Sticker Butterflies were added to complete the card.
