CCC#001 Mid Month inspiration

Wow, there have bee some crazy projects going on at Catherine and Cathy Create!! Did you see Rhea's NAILS yesterday?

I did this card as some inspiration.
There's a few things going on here. First, you'll notice that the black and white paper is slightly curled down. To get that ruffle look you need to wet the edges of your paper.  That will make it soft.  Using your nails you can easily curl the edges down. And since paper has memory it will stay there just for you.

 I simply used linen thread to create a flower.  I then curled the my "ever-loved-gotta-buy-in-multiples-of-every-color-ribbon" to create the centre of the flower.  Since this is the focal point the embossed chevron folder really did the trick to add subtle texture.... and since that picture had chevrons, I just can't stay away. Here's the picture again:
There's still time to enter this challenge - you have until July 31st to link it up!!  See our Tags Challenge (Lets Part-ay!) and Card challenge (Buttons and Bows) as well!

Have a great day!
