One-Layer Wednesday #9

So remember when I said on Monday that Anna was teaching 2 classes this week. Yeah, so I went to the gym today with shades of the White Rabbit's "I'm late, I'm late, no time to say hello, goodbye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late." I bounded up the stairs to the spin studio (dramatic pause) only to find it completely empty. HUH? What gives? I went back downstairs to look at the calendar. Oh, Anna's extra class is NEXT Wednesday. Oops. I figured I'd get a workout in anyway since I was already at the gym.

The One-Layer Wednesday this week (#9) focused on flourishes. I decided to use flourishes as the petals of a flower that's the focus of a birthday card. The style of it looks very similar to a card that I made on this day. The sentiment stamp was on one line, but in order to make it fit on this card, I had to cut it. Meh, I can always piece the stamp back together, and no one would know the difference! :)

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Rouge, Chestnut Roan, Warm Green
Stamps: Fiskars- Birthday (sentiment), Autumn Leaves- Build-a-Flower (stem, leaves), Inkadinkado (flourishes, flower center)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper

I never would have thought of using flourishes for petals, but I love the style of flower it creates. Kind of reminds me of my hair in this humid weather, wild and unruly!
