Thinking of You with Dryer Sheet Flowers

Hi Everyone!

I'm sure by now you realize I am a Snarky Sister!  Well the Sisters got together and talked...We. Like. To. Talk., and decided we had to find some people and have a blast!  We thought let's party with Just Us Girls!  By the way, with that acronym,  J.U.G.s, we new we were going to have an  awesome time!!

This is the first card I made with die-cut flowers from dryer sheets.  I have tried other dryer sheets techniques, but this one was a little more difficult than I had expected.  There were a few different shim trials before I had the flowers cut out completely.  This might be due to the small size of the Tattered Flowers or because of the composition of used dryer sheets.  I tried unused dryer sheets and although they cut out easier, I didn't like the stiff texture.

Prior to cutting, I painted the dryer sheets with Tim Holtz Distress Paints.  The card base is from Stampin' Up and the DP is from the Daphne's Closet Collection by Lawn Fawn.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
