Caffinated Cropper Release Day combined with FFC !!

This is post #2 of 2 for today. 
If you are looking for my Paper Makeup Stamps release post, it is located below this one.

It's Caffinated Cropper's Kit release day!!!
Amy has done it again...
She has created a phenomenally gorgeous kit called Birds of a Feather.
It is so beautiful! I love all the little bits and bobs of it.

One thing that I love with what Amy is doing with these kits...she is pairing up with artists and companies to create one of a kind kits and this month she paired up with one of my favorite stamp companies...Paper Makeup Stamps!!!

The hardest part when you first get the kit is deciding what to use first.
Since it is also a Paper Makeup Stamps release day, I decided to make it a Paper Makeup kind of day on the blog here and use Melody as my focus piece.

Today is also the Friday Fun Challenge and this week's challenge from Kim was to create a handmade flower so I combined the two items and that pretty much dictated the design of my card...

Friday Fun Challenge #81 Details:

Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun Girls blogs for more inspiration.  

We would love for you to play with us-
 just use keywordFFC81 when uploading to your SCS gallery.

For my card design, I took advantage of all the gorgeous papers included in this kit to create the paper-pieced strip on the edge and the layered flower punches (the base white circle punch is included in the kit.)

Supplies Used:
*Caffinated Cropper Birds of a Feather kit (pretty much EVERYTHING on this card)
*watercolor pencils
*StazOn Jet Black inkpad
*various flower punches
*Fiskars border punch

A close-up of the flower detail. I put one of those gorgeous KaiserCraft pearls in the center of it....

And here is a photo of the full kit. I am continually amazed by how much Amy manages to pack into these kits...such fun little items that make it so fun to create!
