Sugar Creek Hollow :Let's save some trees challenge

This week over at SCH there's a great challenge going on Let's Save some Trees . Tracy is asking us to use something on our project from our kitchen --paper towel, coffee filters, etc. I chose to make a flower for my card using paper towel and I just love how they turned out . First I misted a sheet of Paper towel with homemade glimmer mist --victorian lace DI ,perfect pearl powder and water--I then let this dry completely before running it through TH die tattered florals . I noticed that once the towel was dry it created a dot image on the reverse side so I alternated the petals when I put my flower together. Other supplies used

Paper: MME lost and found collection,SU Kraft C/S,Prism c/s
Ink: memento rich cocoa.
Accessories:spellbinders fancy tags, Cheery lynn doily die,Spellbinders edge abilities, lace and ribbon form my stash.
I'm entering this in :

Hi Marilyn, so happy to see you here this week and even more to see this beautiful card. What a fantastic flower using the towels. What a beautiful texture they have, lol, may have to try another one using these. Your border dies, lace and ric rac are so pretty in your LO. Thanks for joining us at Sugar Creek Hollow.

Cool flower Marilyn! What a neat idea.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit, the answer to your question if the flower stamp on the card matches that die. I don't know if there are more stamps that do or not, but it sure is pretty.
