Crocheted Flowers (FS125)

Yesterday, I finished the last of my 27 hours of Foster Care Training, and I was so exhausted when I got home (1 hour drive each way) that I didn't have the energy to create or post anything. This morning, I think the SCS site was acting wonky, so I couldn't do the Featured Stamper Challenge until after I got home from church, lunch and a trip to WalMart. Today's Featured Stamper is DawnL. Her card that I chose to CASE was actually a Featured Stamper card, too! The original card had stamped flowers, and she changed them to hand-crocheted flowers. I was inspired by that since I've been making some of those little flowers lately as well. I changed the card to mostly white. I didn't use patterned paper; instead, I embossed both panels. I used a Sizzlit die instead of a punch for the leaves, and I added half pearls to my flower centers. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
