Unscripted Sketches Challenge #74

Unscripted Sketches has a new challenge each Saturday.  This is the card I created for that challenge.  There is only a small amount of Cricut in it.  I used George to cut some of the basic shapes.

The background paper is from a stack Donna and I shared so I don't have the cover to know the name (sorry).  The bottom layer of the flower is made by cutting a 12" X 1 1/2" strip.  Score every 1/4" and fan fold.  Glue the ends together.  Working on a flat surface, fan the bottom out making a circle.  Place something on top for now to keep it from popping back up.  Cut a circle of paper and glue on the bottom of the flower to help stabilize it.  The top layer is another strip cut at 3/4" X12".  Use the same directions for this layer.  Glue it to the bottom flower and place a large brad or embellishment on top to cover the hole.  It's very simple. 

Please let me know how you make out with the pleated flowers.  If I can help you, please email me.  Thank you for following our blog.  God bless you.  Peggy
