Rolled flowers

I tried my hand at making some rolled flowers the other day, and used them for this card. I think I need some more practice, but I did have fun making them. The tutorial is here on Splitcoast. I  tried to add some pearls to the middle...I found that difficult! I guess I need to fool around with that some more,too.

SU Pool Party is one of my favorite colors.  As you can see, the brad, card stock and designer paper is all Pool Party.

The sentiment is stamped in SU black, but I have no idea from which company. A few weeks ago I was shopping at Moorhead center mall with Brent. Actually, I was in Herbergers and glanced out the door to see a big line forming in the hall. I could tell something was going on...... and I figured I better get in line and see what it was!

So I got in line and tried to see down to the front of it. I could tell there were a bunch of tables, but I had no idea what was on them. I felt a little foolish, but I went ahead and asked the lady in front of me, "What are we in line for anyway?" She laughed and said,"It's a scrapbook rummage sale."

I had to laugh. How could I be so lucky?

The only problem was Brent was in a hurry...I had only 10 minutes! All of a sudden the sale opened up, and away I went. I grabbed an arm load of stamps for next to nothing....and quickly checked out, just in time to meet Brent. I got some great stamps, but I can't help thinking what else I could have gotten. There were tables of paper, cricut cartridges, stamps, embellishments that I didn't get a chance to look at.

Oh well....I did get some really nice stamps, though!

Wow - this looks absolutely stunning in Pool Party! Your rolled flowers look so neat and the pearls are beautifully placed. Weren't you lucky to find yourself in that line - if it had been me I would've been in a line for an industrial machinery sale or something!
