This weeks challenge at Clear It Out is to MAKE your own flower embellishments with your scraps. 

If you need some instructions on making flowers or just need the inspiration, there is a WHOLE POST on flower tutorials over on the challenge blog HERE.

Here is my Flower:

The sentiment is from Unity's Sweet Celebration Birthday. I mixed two SU inks to make the color match the flower a little better.

This is one of my PC Mag sketch submission rejects! I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out, even if they didn't!

And since it is Friday, don't forget to go to Unity's blog and check out everyone participating in Friends With Flair.
