Flower Topiary and a GIVEAWAY!!

Hey friends!!  Today is 3D Wednesday over at My Creative Time and I have a fabulous project to share with you today along with a GIVEAWAY!!  Ever since Emma created the Rolled Flower Dies, I have been wanting to do a project just like this.  Check it out......

I had this old decorative flower pot that I thought of tossing, but it ended up making the move to our new home a few months ago.  I altered it a little bit by spray painting the base with a light coat of cream spray paint (it was a mossy green before).  

I then rolled lots of flowers out of paper from Echo Park called Life Is Good with the Rolled Flower Dies and glued them onto this 6 inch foam ball and added a few pearl pins into the center of several of the flowers.  I then pushed the ball of flowers onto a stick that I had wrapped some green ribbon around and then finished it off with a bow and button.  Here is a closer look at the flowers.  Wouldn't this make a fab Mother's Day Present??

Alright!!  Who is ready for a giveaway?!?  I have three sets of Echo Park 6x6 papers to give away along with three spools of the new glimmer twine from The Twinery.  


How to enter:
  • Leave a comment below with a guess as to how many rolled flowers I have glued onto this topiary.  I will randomly draw 3 winners from all comments.  If you are randomly drawn and have correctly guessed how many flowers there are, I will send you an extra spool of the glimmer twine.
Extra entries:
  • Follow my blog via Google Friend Connect, Google Reader, Network Blogs, or via Feedburner and leave a comment letting me know that you are a follower via one of the above (sign up on the right toolbar).
  • Like Scrapping Mommy on Facebook and leave a comment on my page and come back here and let me know that you did for another entry.
  • Follow me via Pinterest and pin an image of my project above onto one of your boards and then leave a comment with a link to your pin for another entry.
  • Share this post on Facebook, twitter, or on your blog and leave a comment below with a link below where you shared for another entry.
So, you have 5 possible entries into this giveaway.  So fun!! I will leave the giveaway open until the evening of May 19th and draw a winner via random.org.  I can't wait to see your guesses. Good Luck!!  

Don't forget to hop on over to the My Creative Time blog when you are done to check out what fab creations my fellow design team members have to share.

ETA: I am adding this to the Moxie Fab World Cards and Gifts Week : The Gift Challenge

****WINNERS CHOSEN AND POSTED HERE****

There are a total of 217 flowers on this topiary.  I used almost 14 sheets of 12x12 cardstock to make this project.

Hugs,
Amy
