Where's the MOJO?



I think that i have lost my MOJO. I'm just not in the mood. However, i did see this challenge over on SCS for this Dahlia Flower and thought that i would try it. I combined it with the SC161 layout challenge. I thought that this would be so much fun to do. well if you like origami, i think that you would. I first used my mega circle punch to make the dahlia flower. OMG! so big.so then i used my 1 3/8 inch circle punch. much better! i was putting all my layers together and i just didn't like it so i punched out some circles, the directions says to punch out 8, however for some reason i needed 9. I have about 27 different circles punched out.if anyone wants them let me know, i'll be happy to send them to you as i don't see myself making many more of these flowers...primas are so much easier! i just couldn't find my mojo making this. This is the best of what i was able to come up with. Let me know what you think!
Recipe:

Sooo pretty-I have been seeing lots of these as I am surfing about today. I might have to try my hand at one. I like your warning about not using too big a punch!

Pattyw, if you'd like the punched circles just send me your address and i will send them to you! The cuttlbbug swirl design in an embossing folder. so easy to use, but you do need the cuttlebug machine! lol
thanks for asking!
