Quite Simply ... Simple ...

How often do you find that you look through your stash of cards to find out that none of them are suitable for a particular occasion?   

If you have ever found yourself struggling to make that last minute card in ultra quick time then this little card is for you.  I promise that you really can make it in 5 minutes flat so it would be great for either a quick card or when you have lots to make e.g. invitations.  

It could easily be converted into a gift tag as well!

The card base here is an A6 card but you could adjust the design to fit any size card or tag.

 I used some of the papers from the 

Roughly draw 3 circles on coordinating papers from the pack with pencil and tear the circles out to create the layers of the flowers {remember to tear inside of the pencil line so that you do not see it on the final flower}

**If anyone would like a mini tutorial on paper tearing then send me an e-mail at teresa@philpotts.com and I will upload a little tutorial on the website for you **

Once you have the three circles they need a little 'ruffing' up at the edges (pinch and bend the edges with your fingers).

Stick into place towards the top of the card and add a button in the center.  You could always add a little Stickles Glitter Glue around the edges of the petal to add a little sparkle.

The sentiment stamp used for the stem and leaves below the flower is called 

Stamp the stem first and then the scroll leaf one at a time.

A little doodling and a few gems and the card is complete ...
