Torn Flower

This card turned out much cuter than I expected. The big flower is made my tearing four different reds in circles of four different sizes. Then the edges are rolled upwards. I used a pin to mark where the holes needed to be in the center of the flower and then punched holes in each layer. Next the scrapers floss was threaded through the layers and the button and tied. A little yellow ink was applied to the floss for color. The swirls are from the stamp set curls and swirls by the angel company. The little bee is from my honey by tac and the words are from some long forgotten stamp set from tac. The edge is punched with a fiskar punch. and the little flowers are then adhered on the card and Christmas red stickles are in the centers. The bee wings have crystal stickles applied. Oh and the bee is colored with prisma color pencils.

Just so sweet! I love the flower and am dying to make one! I love what you've been doing with all the bees and I think the butterfly card with the fan charm is just stunnig! I promise to comment more now that things have settled down. I've missed you!
