A farewell flower

How time flies! It's time for our final challenge in the Sizzix blog hop. We had so much fun with those beautiful, versatile dies. The last die was particularly fun. The BOW is a series of strips bind together to create… anything. When I started playing with it, I immediately saw a flower in the making.

I decided to cut new strips from patterned and solid papers and build a multi layered flower. After the flower was assembled I added some stamens from rolled narrow strips of paper. For the final touch I sprinkled some colored Mika on top of the petals. Then I attached a wooden skewer as a stem and added some green leaves made from the same Die.

This was such a fun blog hop. It gave me a chance to work with the new great Sizzix Dies, as well as being a part of an amazing group of designers. I'm sorry it is over so quickly. Can't wait for the next one!
