I made this card for the sketch challenge on PaperCraftPlanet. I thought it was a fun sketch to work with and when I saw the sketch I thought of these paper flowers that I have been wanting to try. I've seen them made a couple of different ways, but I made mine with tissue paper and Glimmer Mist.
First I cut 6 circles from the turquoise tissue paper, each a little smaller than the last. Then I sprayed them twice with sky blue Glimmer Mist. I waited for that to dry, doesn't take long. I crinkled the circles and then flattened them back out and layered them. I put a button in the center and stitched it with DMC embroidery thread. The stitching on the card is Martha Stewart floss. I cut the leaf shapes from Bazzill cardstock and crinkled them and them adhered them with glue dots. It was really easy to make, I will be making more :)
