Handmade Tissue Paper Flower

Ooops!  This is my third posting of the day.  I promised this will be the last one of the day.  Please scroll down for more postings of the day!

Over at Moxie Fab World's challenge is to create something from Tissue Papers and at Penny Black is to create something Bold and Bright.  Just-Add-Ink's theme for this week is "Just Add Flower".

I remembered when I was at primary school, I made lots of carnation flowers using colorful tissue papers.  When Moxie Fab World announced on this challenge, I had to make this carnation flower again.  It's very easy to make.

For the card, I used PB Delicate Pattern which is heat embossed in white and distressed it with broken china and peeled paint.  I put the pearled accent randomly on the card and cut a separate small piece of paper whereby I stamped the sentiment and put my handmade carnation flower which was distressed lightly on the edges with the same colours as the card.

I hit the "post comment" button and realized I mixed up the letters in your name! I'm typing way too fast this morning, I guess! Sorry! :)
