A Little birdie told ME......

D2D, Delightful Inspiration and Double Delight are the feature today. the image is from D2D, Cluck, and the pop ups are the challenge this week at Double Delight.  They call it 'Popcorn Chicken'...how cute is that!!!!
I was looking for something different to use as a back drop and just picked up the tissue paper that was remaining from the flower. it's true color is with the close up. Below with the card it shows up so dark and the photos were taken just seconds apart.

For the flower, I folded a strip of tissue paper, fan style twelve times, and punched out with a 1 3/8" circle punch. Pushed a brad through and crumbled up each layer of tissue...starting on the top layer. Then pull each layer out gently to achieve the look and size that you want.
Thanks for coming by!
