Cheery Lynn Designs New Release and Corner Adorners Challenge

I have two projects for Cheery Lynn Designs today.  We have a new release as well as the weekly challenge.  First my new release project I did a 12 x 12 inch layout.....


My friend, Cathy went to Hawaii this summer and this is a picture she took of a Frangipani.  Using the new Hawaiian Luau Doily I framed the image.  Using my Mega Sunflower Doily as a backdrop, I added 6 Frangipani blossoms and leaves.  I also added some branches from the Embellishments #2 die. 

Look at the wonderful detail on the doily!  For the centers of my flowers, I used the new Expandable Quilling Strip die, winding up a coil with my quilling tool.  I also created the little curly cues with the quilling strips  The border across the bottom was created with the new Expandable Tiny Borders die.  Finished size is 12 x 12 inches.

This week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge is Corner Adorners, you must use a corner embellishment. 

For my tent card I used my Horizon Coved Rectangle Mega Doily and my Silver Coved Rectangle dies to create the image panel.  These cute Pumpkins are new from Karen's Doodles.  I use my Lace Corner Deco H dies to cut the corner spider webs.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches. 

Be sure to visit the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge blog for more inspiration and to join in on this week's Corner Adorners challenge for a chance to win $20 to the store.

This is such a pretty layout. I had the pleasure of seeing a Frangipani in person and your flowers are so life like I can almost smell the beautiful scent. Brings back wonderful memories. I also love how you made those little curly cues with the new quilling strip.
