Oktoberfest is not too far off

I know I'm a little early but I wanted to make some table decorations for Oktoberfest. Since I am of Germany heritage,  I love to decorate my house for what we call the 5th season of the year. The Daisy, the Poppy and the Corn flower are traditional flowers for this time.

 The daisy was easy since Stampin'Up! released a medium version of this flower. After a little brainstorming I was able to come up with the Poppy by using one of the Magnolia Memory dies. The problem came when I tried to create the Corn Flower. I searched for pictures online of the real thing to come up with an idea. I was able to use the Daisy punch and modified the leafs, by cutting little slits in every petal.

 I'm very pleased with my finished project. I'm happy I was able to create my vision with just a few changes. It's always good to think outside the box.
 I would love to hear your thoughts on this project!

Thanks for checking out my latest project.
