Just Us Girls #77 - Zipper Flower

Hello!  Hope you've had a great day!  I am popping in quick to share the card I made for this week's Just Us Girls Challenge #77 - to create a flower from a zipper and use it on our project.

What a fun challenge!  I've seen these flowers around, but have never given them a try.  Dana shared a terrific tutorial she wrote for the Want2Scrap blog and I used that to create my flower.

My card is also for last week's Sketch Challenge (SC0323) on The Outlawz site.  Here is the sketch:

Here is my card for both challenges:

I started with a card base of SU Taken With Teal and layered with patterned paper from the K & Co. Que Sera Sera pad.  I created the zipper flower following Dana's tutorial.  I added a gem to the center of the flower and some ribbon leaves to finish it.  My Magnolia image is Tilda With Small Gift and I colored her with Copic markers and highlighted with Spica pens.  The image panel and mats were cut with Spellbinders Scallop and Plain Petite Ovals.  A little teal bow and it was done. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back soon to share a few other challenge cards that I've been working on!
