Something Different.....

I wanted to try something different so I thought I would have a go at making my own tissue paper flowers. I cut them out with my new Nellie C from the Craft Den and edged the flowers with worn lipstick distress ink.

I then scrunched the flowers up because they looked pretty flat without doing this. I then mounted them on top of one another and added a button from a collection that my Mum picked up for me on Friday as a centre.

I used black flock artylicious paper from the Craft Den with thick pink velvet ribbon (my Mum picked this up for me too!!!). I used some old Twinkle Type letters that I got from the Craft Den ages and ages ago to write Mum.

I made the card for my Mum to give to my Nanan for Mothers Day. She loved it when she saw it this morning.
