Peachy Keen Stamps Let's Face It Friday Challenge #12

Hi Everyone,
It's time for a brand new Peachy Keen Stamps "Let's Face It Friday" Challenge!
This challenge was so much fun!! I learned how to make some gorgeous paper flowers from Angelica, you can learn how too, from this video! Now I'm obsessed with making paper flowers. I even went out and bought some glimmer mist (which I love!).

The Challenge:
Create a project using a handmade flower. Handmade flowers are making a huge come back! At CHA this winter, we saw TONS of ways to make your own custom blooms using mists, petal rollers, and scoring tools. For this challenge, create any project you like, and embellish it with a pretty handmade flower!

-Design must be new
-Project must include Peachy Keen Faces
-Link up before April 1st

PK-461 Happy Lashes Faces- set of 6
PK-561 Dolly Dumplin Faces - set of 6

I used the technique from Angelica's video. These are the flowers I made on a scrapbook page and a card. The purple flowers on the scrapbook page were painted with Twinkling H2O's in snapdragon and periwinkle and for the golden orange flower I used rose gold and deep coral.
The face on my little Gretel is from PK-757 Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Face Assortment! The little face on my leprechaun and the eye on my Robin are from PK-450 Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment!
