Triple Treat Fall flower!

Hello!  Happy Saturday!  Hope that you are having a wonderful start to the holiday weekend!  I have had the best day!  My youngest kiddo and I set out early to find some yard sales and had a blast together! Then hubby and I and three of our kids rode the ferry to a nearby town and had a nice afternoon out together!  Now we are waiting on a pizza delivery and are having family movie night!  Life is good! :)

Onto something crafty!  Stampin Up! offers some really cute A' la carte stamps and I couldn't wait to get this one all inked up! Since I have Fall on the brain I thought I would turn it into a Fall flower.  I wanted it to be kind of shabby chic looking so I dirtied it up with lots of sponging and crumpling and tearing.  Here is what I came up:

I stamped the  flower three times and used the piece I punched  the flower from as a template to sponge the shape of the middle flower on my card base.  (Phew!  That was a mouthful!)  I tore the edges and crumbled up the main image.  I added some rhinestone bling and layered the flower.

Stamps: Triple Treat Flower and Fifth Avenue Floral

OK, off to have some dinner and watch a movie!  Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with another fun project! :)
