New Foam Flowers!

Hi blogger friends!

I have a card to share today that features a new technique where the flowers are made from, what they're calling, foam paper.

Entering in these challenges:

Allsorts - #534-5 Feminine
Cardz4 Galz - #227 Wings
Crafty Creations - #396 AAG
Crafty Friends - #117 Add Embellishments
Creatalicious - #169 Add Sparkle
Digi Choosday - #34 AAG
Di's Digi - Ribbons and Bows
Double D - Pearls/Gems
Penny's - #444 AAG
Polkadoodles - #34 AAG
QKR Stampede - #360 AAG (Won Top 5!)

I got this card kit from Paper Wishes, and it's a monthly box kit put out by Crafter's Companion, and it revolves around the flower dies and the flowers cut from the foam paper. Once the flowers are cut out, you heat the foam with a either a heat gun or I used a craft iron, and you shape it with a metal ball stylus tool or your fingers and once the foam cools, it keeps that shape. Pretty fun, new technique. You can watch how to form the flowers here.The kit makes 18 cards and everything is included to make a complete card. You can see what's in the box here. All except that fuzzy looking paper under the printed paper. That is Mulberry paper and another technique I got from Bonny Garby which you can go here to watch on Youtube.

I found these pearl butterfly and dragonfly in my stash and had to include them.

That's it for today, hope you enjoyed stoppin' by!
Thanks to all the challengers above for lettin' me play along.
