Swirly-Twirly Gumdrop Flower

I love this one flower in the Crazy About You stamp set where the petals kinda curve around and it makes me think of Buddy the Elf talking about swirly-twirly gumdrops and I bet these are the kind of flowers that would grow on gumdrop trees.  (And if I'm misquoting Elf, it's because I didn't get to watch it this Christmas.)  What do you think?

I just inked up my Sahara Sand ink pad, and it made some kinda fun patterns on the leaves when I stamped them (I stamped them off once first).  That was a happy accident, but I'm still looking forward to upgrading my ink pads to the firm foam ones.  My Sahara Sand is quite old and kinda dips in the center.  And if you look closely, you might see that I put some Dazzling Details glitter glue on the center of my gumdrop flower.

Anyway, I used the color challenge from the Paper Players, with the addition of Basic Black:

And the sketch is from Retro Sketches:

That's it for me today, it's raining outside so I'm going to go spend time in my craft room and make something pretty.  Cheers, peeps!

Pretty card! I like the texture in the's makes them all different, as they are in real life! I too have been loving that flower...I keep putting it on and taking it off my 'must have''ve made me put it back on again! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along with The Paper Players this week!
