Happy Sunday!

Just another quickie post as we're headed out to my in-laws. I just wanted to make sure I posted this. It's a card made for the 3D JUGS challenge. Challenge is to make a 3D flower using ANY technique you know of to make 3D flowers. I used the spray and crumple CS technique. I don't know if there is something out there like it...but I worked it in...lol. I used a spray bottle to dampen the CS pieces AFTER I cut them and then crumpled and flattened out to let them dry. I used Spellbinders Peony to make my flower. I decided to go a bit CAS on this one. Hope you like!

Head on over to JUGS to check out another great way to make these flowers by checking out an awesome video tutorial by Mona Pendleton using the tissue paper technique. Thanks for the challenge girls!
