Missing you

This origami flower is a favorite of mine. It takes a scalloped circle die from Spellbinders for cutting the circles. The orginal instructions called for two sided paper but I always ink, paint and stamp my own. The green and yellow background paper was bleached in spots and over stamped. All the stamps on this one are from Cornish Heritage Farms.And here are the links to the Origami flower tutorial videos
The background on this one is more of the Technique Junkies Camouflage technique paper. The long landscape panel is one of my favorite Biblical Impressions stamps. It reminds me of the time I have spent in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I used markers and a waterbrush to color it.
These will be going to Cards for Heroes.

These are so beautiful. I love the yellow flower. That's a great tip to color or stamp the other side of the paper instead of using two-sided paper. That scenic stamp on the second card is gorgeous. These are going to make some soldier feel like he/she hit the jackpot.
