Recycled Flower

I recently gave my scrap draw a tidy, and while it is still fuller than I would like with half-finished things, it's a bit more organised and I have started working through the half-completed projects. These two flower pieces were among the items in my drawer, originally stamped and coloured for a Kristina colour challenge, but I started trimming the full flower closer than I meant to, so I re-did it. I trimmed the full flower as I had started, so little bits of petal would poke off the edge, layered it and then went looking for a sketch so I could finish it off quickly. I settled on Julee's Mojo Monday for last week, creating a little tag sentiment and stamping the Floral background and sponging the edges.
