Today I have an altered item to share with you.
I found this wooden 'C' at Winners.  My friend who is a nurse just finished a course to become qualified to work in the dialysis unit...it was fraught with exams and a practicum. But she did it!!!! YAY!!!  So I wanted to get her a little something in celebration and of course it needed to be dressed up a bit.  What better way than with some Heartfelt Creations flowers!!

I used the Classic Rose stamp and die.  I clear embossed the flowers onto white cardstock.  I then added some coral ink and used my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the roses.

I wanted the leaves to be soft so I stamped them onto white cardstock and then distressed the edges with the same ink.

For the big rose I used all the same size flower.  I wanted a nice tight rose and I found the best way to achieve this was to use the same size flower.  As I got closer to the center I cut the flower in half so that is was easier to shape around the bud in the middle.

I added some Wink of Stella to the flower petals for just a hint of sparkle.  I also added Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops onto the leaves to simulate dew or rain drops.



I tucked in some springs from the Arianna Lace die set.

I like adding little details to my projects like this motif from the Arianna Lace die set.

Recipe:  HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Smoothie & Sea Glass, Versamark Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella-Clear, Stickles-Crystal Ice, Rhinestones, Nuvo Crystal Drops-Clear, Pearls, Organza Ribbon, Wooden Letter.

Little did my friend know that when I was at her house for some crafting time, I was making these flower for HER!!
Now it's time to hop on over to Archana's Blog.
