I made the stacked flower with a gray floral print (Dahlias) from American Crafts' I Do collection and strips of yellow dotted paper from Queen Bee. You can probably figure it out just by the picture, but here are the pics and directions just in case. 1. Cut 3 flowers from Dahlias paper - 1 large, 1 small, and 1 medium flower. 2. Cut circle of plain cardstock using Nestibilities or a circle punch. Cover with ScorTape. 3. Cut strip of yellow paper and adhere to cardstock circle. Fold the strip over onto itself as you continue around it around the circle. Make a second flower using a smaller cardstock circle and a more narrow strip of yellow paper. 4. Make a small hole in the center of each of the gray and yellow flowers. Attach them together (smallest to largest) using a Bella brad.Pretty simple, but I love the effect. Later, friends.

Hey, look at me... blogging again this week. I know... I'm shocked, too. I'm getting back in the groove. Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments from my last post. I could talk for days and days and more days about my trip, so I'm sure I'll be sharing more. Honestly, I was a little afraid I'd come back and everyone would be *poof* gone... disappeared... angry at me for not getting some posts scheduled to go on while I was gone. But in the end, preparing for the trip while trying to finish up some projects and spend some extra time with the littles added up to no extra blogging time. Funny how that happens. But the upside is... now I have a few extra projects to post from before I left. Like this one. This would be the card that started my smallish love affair with the Pink Paislee Queen Bee Bella Brads.
