Inspired Flower...

Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than before it. -Madeleine L'Engle

What a lazy Sunday! I am recovering from a long sunny day yesterday, nursing a bit of a sunburn and just not into Doing anything productive. I've organized files in my computer, watched a few old episodes of Supernatural and made a sheet of Challenges to play along with. Then I decided to actually stamp. I should have made something for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, but that will have to wait. I have been wanting to play with a flower idea I got from a friend's purse, so I pulled out some circle punches and got to work.

The layout is from this week's Fall-To Layout...
This is the flower that started it all...
Here is a closer look at the flower, I used 5 circles glued together, I had to snip the middle out of the flower to set the pearl, then I used faux stitching to mimic the original...
