Freshly Made Sketches #7 - Delightful Melon

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week.  I used The Sizzix Fun Flowers Die, Blossom Petals Builder Punch and the Doily Triple Layer Punch to make the flower.  When I had the two bottom layers cut I ran them through the Big Shot using the Petals-a-Plenty EB Folder and sponged them with White Craft Ink. The centre two Petals are sponged and scrunched.  After I assembled the flower I Spritzed it with a Alcohol and Shimmer Mist mixture and then manipulated the petals into shape.  I used a leaf from French Foliage Stamp Set for the leaves.

This card received a Perfect Princess Award this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
