ANOTHER CAS CARD WITH A FL0WER

While I was making my beaded lavender card, this flower and sentiment came to me:


Some time ago I saw a flower tutorial similar to this but with single petals (not loops).

The sentiment is one that i read somewhere, so I printed it direcly on to the white card base.

The flower was made with layer upon layer of 3" autumn/fall coloured DP offcuts, and there is a shiny gold button in the centre.

That's it ... I love the simplicity of the card and the finished project is EXACTY as I envisioned it.
