Paper Frosting Friday #3

Hi crafty friends......hope you're all well!
Oh my, you wouldn't believe how hot it is here today.......not good for me but I hope it continues for those of you who enjoy the heat! I'll be locked away in my craft room with the fan blowing so it's a win win situation all round lol!
Anyway, welcome to Paper Frosting Friday #3.....my attempt to use up lots of bits of stash to make my own embellishments for cards, scrapbooks etc., ......and I decided to call them Paper
 Frosting! This week I made some paper flowers......the paper I used must be one of the oldest packs I have in my stash....it's a pearlised paper in pinks blues, greens & yellows & looks so much prettier IRL. I left them all plain but you could ink the edges, emboss the paper, stamp on it.........lots of options. I also kept them fairly open but have tried adding more layers for a more closed look flower.....and they look amazing!
Rightio, better get a move on, I'm hoping to see my Grandson today! Thanks for calling & for any comments you might leave......and don't forget to let me know if I've inspired you to use up some bits of your stash......I'd love to see what you've made!
