Weekend Sketch Challenge #49

This is my version of Beate's sketch for this weekend's challenge.

The flower is made from linen textured cream card. I used one of my No Tools flower petal shapes as a template, and drew round it on the back of the card as I couldn't fold it to cut them out. Still didn't take too long to do. I left the cream card plain, and just shaped it before sticking the petals on to a snowflake. The centre is a 1" Woodware Blink Blink punch, and a mini Woodware punch which they just call Flower. The leaves were punched with a Leone Em (Woodware) Evergreen Punch. The two plain colours of card used in the backing are Bazzill, and the gorgeous patterned paper is K & Co Smitten Paisley Glittered Paper. Click on the picture above to enlarge it so that you can see the detail and the glitter better.

Stunning! I love the color combo. I have tried making a few flowers using your no tools method and am really proud of myself. They don't compare with yours, but I'm hoping they'll get better with practice. Thanks for the inspiration!
