Embellish Paper Piecing Color Challenge

Hi everyone. I have decided to do another Embellishmagazine.com color challenge. I just love the colors for this one and I love to paper piece. My scissors and I have a very close relationship. :)

For this challenge I knew I had to paper piece a flower, my favorite thing to piece together. It just brings the flower so much dimension making them feel more real. So first I stamped my image on green cardstock and cut that out for my leaves and then I stamped my image on yellow to cut out the flower part. I put it all together and this is what you get. And to even add more interest to the flowers, I added some glitter glue for a little sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!!
