More Paper Flowers

I made this birthday card for a dear sweet friend. She is quite the gardener, so a floral card seemed in order. The base is a 4.25" square, and I did a modified layout based on CPS Sketch Challenge #117

Its the same paper flower from this post, but I started with bigger circles (cut with nestabilities) and tore the edges up a little before rolling and crumpling. I also used the darkest color from the raspberry fizz trio of Copics (RV19) to darken the edges a little more. At the center is a New Leaf vintage button (yep its green alright!)

The leaves were punched with a wide oval punch then stamped and crumpled and distressed. The flourishes are from Autumn Leaves.
I also colored some regular rhinestones with my dark chocolate Copic (E59)
Thanks for stopping by.
