Elegant Ruffle Flower Card
Firstly I must acknowledge wonderful tutorial by Vicky Alberto on her blog Simply Paper. This is one of several different flowers that she has done tutorials on and I thank her for sharing them all with me.
My flower did not come out as beautiful as hers but I am very happy with the result and I mounted it onto a doilly that I had punched out of gold paper. I have sprayed my flower and leaves with wheatfields glimmer mist, one of my favourites, to give it a bit of sparkle. The background of the card is sprayed through another doilly with wheatfields glimmermist and then the doilly is removed to leave a sillhouette pattern. I cut pieces of the sprayed doilly to put along the bottom and top right corner. I embellished the flower and top left corner with sequins, foil leaves and foil flowers. Finally I added dots of gold and cinnamon stickles to cover the holes in the foil elements and also in the centers of the doilly wheels.
