KWerner Color Inspiration # 37 Petal closure and surprise interior




It certainly looks like big bold flowers and tugboats are the order of the day over at Kristina's blog! It always makes me smile to see that there is usually a common thread running through each weeks inspiration.
This week I used mostly Die Cuts from Stampin' Up and the Big Shot Machine, and I love the boldness of the card. I wanted to make a fold off center, and use a petal to act as a closure. I started with raw vinyl and continues with designer paper and card stock. It all finished up with an unexpected finished interior! ~Enjoy!
