Christmas Card Challenges #30 - Rolled Paper Flowers

It's another challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and we would like to see you use Rolled Paper Flowers somewhere on your card!
I used a die from Cheery Lynn Designs but there are lots of other ways to make this style of flower.

Remember that our challenge is optional, we really just want to help you on your quest to be ready with all your Christmas cards!

Paper Play - Use a Die
Holly Jolly Christmas - Punches/Dies (Must be Christmas 10 combined challenges max)
One Stop Craft - Christmas in June
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes Christmas
2 Sisters - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Shelly's Thrilling Thursday - Anything Goes (5 entries only)
Auds Sentiments - Bingo! (I chose Happy, Flowers, Bling)

Card Recipe:
Image - Skating Mouse by Meljens
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Martha Stewart
Metalic Cardstock - American Crafts
Flower Die - Cheery Lynn Designs
Label Die - Spellbinders
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Pearls - The Paper Studio

I think this die is designed to make a daisy style flower but in red it does a pretty good impression of a poinsettia to me :)
And this shot is the perfect reason to NOT attach your cardstock mat before coloring your image, the red showing through her dress is where the Copics "melted" the metallic top to the cardstock, oh well, lesson learned.
I hope you enjoyed this and will get into the Festive Spirit (Christmas will be here before you know it!) and come and share with us at Christmas Card Challenges
