It's Party Time!

It's Party Time Tuesday challenge time! And as it's the last Tuesday of the month, the theme for this week is Anything Goes! Pattie of Twosday's Techniques is showing us how to make some really cool flowers and we have a great digi sponsor, Chi Chi Memories! I got to play with the Birthday Boy stamp set:
I paper pieced the cake by printing the stamp on scraps of cardstock, then colored with Sakura gel pens and added buttons and Robin's Nest Dew Drops. Background paper is Echo Park - Little boy. I made the flower pin following Pattie's technique, but I used a star punch:
Here is what it looked like before soaking in water:
Now a closeup after shaping:

I hope you can join the Party this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Patchi I love your card, especially how you changed up your punch to create your flower. This is such a fun birthday card for a little boy, with the adorable background and bright colours. Great Work!
