We were very lucky to be given images to use for this challenge by our sponsor Sally-Ann, I just adored Polly with handbag straight away, she is sooooo..... my Lillie!!! I used my neglected DCWV Nanna's kids card and went for a nice bright colour scheme for a change! The flower is my first attempt at a handmade flower like this and I just love it! I have one of these flowers on my previous post but that was my 2nd attempt lol!! They are made by cutting 3 different sized petal shapes (several of each, I used 7) putting a little hole at the non pointy petal end, then scrunching up and unscrunching, thread onto a brad starting with smallest petal -> largest, then scrunch around the brad!
a close up of my flowerI cannot believe how similar my flower is to my miniture rose plant, which I had for valentine's day! It was even the same size!!!
As mentioned above our sponsor is Sally-Ann of the :
