I am so blessed to have a group of wonderful friends. We get together once a month for dinner and lots of chatter and laughter. We call ourselves the "Stampin Grannies". We all scrapbook, card make or craft. Last week three of us got together to make 'paper pine cones'. We had so much fun and I will admit my first ones are probably not the the best but I did have a lot of fun creating them! I have a book by Susan Tierney Cockburn and oh my, the flowers in it are fantastic. You can find all of the pproducts you need to create these flowers and pine cones at http://joanscreations.blogspot.com/ . Joan is great to order from. Also there is a great instructions from her designer Selma at http://joanscreations.blogspot.com/
that will guide you through making the pine cones. The image is from Sarah Kay and I colored it with Copics. My dp is from SU and I framed my image with Nestablities. I added my pine cone, some eyelash yarn, punched leaves, roses from Wild Orchid crafts, rhinestones and a golden ribbon.
I am entering this card at the following challenges: http://joanscreations.blogspot.com/
