Anyone For Anya? Funky Flowers Challenge!
I'm slowly getting back into the mode of making cards for various challenges throughout "blogland". I made this card for Anyone For Anya's Funky Flower Challenge.
Call me " " but I think the "funky flowers" means either cute or wild! I chose to go with cute and I hope that my interpretation of funky is OK with this challenge.
I made the criss cross effect on my base mat by lining the pointed end of the square mat evenly on my Scor-Pal. Each score mark is in increments of one inch lines. After I completed the first series of score marks, I flipped my mat, lined it up as I did in the beginning (only this time I lined up the opposite pointed end of my mat) and finished scoring my base mat. I made a little "boo-boo" on the front left hand side of my mat which I didn't realize until I decided to embellish each intersection with a half pearl. To even out my mistake, I simply added an extra half pearl to the upper front of the right hand side of my card.
My image, Savannah (WS ) is mounted onto two different mats. The bottom mat was created by the Fleur De Lis Pendant die. I really love the intricate design of this die but I'm having problems getting the die to cut cleanly. I ran the Fleur De Lis Pendant die through my Wizard a few times and I still had to trim out the inner open designs with my small scissors. The second die I used was my large oval nestie dies and large oval scallop die.
If anyone has any tips for obtaining a clean cut with the Fleur De Lis Pendant Die, I would appreciate your feedback.

Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!
