Embellish - Paper Piecing and Pretty!

What a beautiful helping of luverly inspiration Embellish served up for us this time! Look at this eye candy and these gorgeous colours!!

Lots of inspiration available here! (And the DT samples were loaded with gorgeous stuff!)

I decided to go floral ... and somehow in these colours the dahlia just looked a bit sunflower-ish to me! Maybe I just have fall-mania or something?! :0) We have so many beautiful colours emerging on the trees and bushes outside! Gracious, I just love this time of year!!!

I used some micro beads for the flower centre and covered them with a dollop of glossy accents when they were all done - (extra shine never did anything any harm - don't you think!?)

The 'doily' is Spellbinders new "Eyelet Circles" - I cut the centre out so you could see the lovely kraft peeking through it.

Thanks for popping in!

Thanks to Embellish for another round of fantastic fun - it's always a pleasure to play along!

Have a great evening Peeps!!



Materials - Papertrey Ink, except - Writing Stamp and Sentiment - Hero Arts; Circle Dies - Spellbinders; Pearls - Kaiser

Oooh, I like the stitching above the scallops. The whole things is a stunner, but it's the details that MAKE it.

Lovin' the extra shine you added here, Nerina! That flower looks like it was designed to be yellow - so happy and bright!
