A Thank You Gift for Susan Tierney-Cockburn

Today I am sharing with you a gift created for Susan Tierney-Cockburn.   I posted earlier that my friend Pat and I drove over to Seattle and had a wonderful day with Susan.  We wanted to create something for her, as a small token of our appreciation.  As I have stated many times before, I first learned how to create beautiful flowers using Susan's instruction book and her Punch Bunch punches, so it was a real honor to be able to meet her.   Thanks again Susan.

The above picture, on the left is the  thank you card created using her "Susan's Garden "Bird & Wreath" embossing folder and her "Mini Petals Flower dies.  On the right is the  piece that was placed in a deep black framed shadow box.  We used the Susan's Garden Rose Flower dies to create the pretty rose and rose buds.   

This is a picture of the framed piece.  It was very hard to get a good picture because of the reflection in the glass.

 This is a picture of the piece before it was placed inside the frame.

 Here you can see the dimension of the Rose.

I have created many flowers, but there are no punches or dies that create more realistic flowers than those in the new  Sizzix "Susan's Garden" flower collection dies.  Susan has thought of everything to create the most beautiful,  realistic flowers in each set of flower dies, plus the new Flower Tool Kit, the Pan Pastels for coloring, and new "Pollen" to create realistic stamens.
