The above picture was the inspiration for this months Blog Hop. The card that I had in my head had flowers on it. The card in my head and the card that I made were totally different and I couldn't make it work. I had the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch on my work area, so I decided to go with butterflies. One of the reasons that I bought this punch was because I had seen many cards using this layout and I have never done it. So now I have. Thanks for looking.

DIY Badge-Homemade Embellishments. This is the card I made for this challenge. I watched the video of Melissa Phillips using the Double-Ended Banner Die and I was going to use one of those, which I think were really neat. After I die cut my banners from felt, I remember seeing on someone's blog how to make loopy rolled flowers. I folded the banners in half, long ways, and I used score tape to hold them together. I then took my snips and made cuts along the folded edge. I used more score tape and rolled the flowers. I used Mono Multi on the ends and glue dot to adhere them to my card. Thank for looking.
