Chairsma Cardz - Girly card with flowers

Good morning, we have a new challenge at Charisma Cardz and our theme this week is 'girly with flowers'.
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 :
The lucky winner gets to choose 10 fabulous digi images from the boutique!
