You can see the Button Buddies flower which I paper-pieced and combined with the fabulous polka dot leaves from Sweetheart.
The flower image is actually a stylised chrysanthemum which looks nothing like this, but I think it looks fab layered up on dotty paper! I chose a Pretty In Pink paper from the Patterns designer stack in Subtles. These Patterns stacks contain four tone-on-tone designs in all the colours from each collection and I find them SO useful for backgrounds and mats as well as for focal pieces like this flower.
The Scallop Circle punch fits the flower perfectly so I only had to cut out the two smaller layers. Using dimensionals makes the flower pop and I sponged the edges of the petals to add to the 3D effect.
The sentiment running along the flower stem is one of my favourite bits of this card!
I used my favourite Naturals Ivory card stock to make my card base and the camera has picked up the flecks in it and made them look very obvious - must be something to do with the light. In real life you can hardly see the flecks and the card stock looks and feels very soft and suede-like.

I was going to take the children to the cinema to see the Three Musketeers yesterday to mark the end of term but I'd forgotten that I was heading out to a birthday party! (Honestly, these senior moments are getting ridiculous!) The children were all very understanding and sent me out to enjoy myself while they, I am quite sure, settled down for an evening's pleasure plugged into their favourite electronic devices, uninterrupted by their nagging mother!
Thank you for coming to see my card - I can't wait to come and see what you've made. (But first I have an appointment with the fruit and veg man at the market!)
See you later,
