Three Flowers

Hello friends,
I'm all flowers and butterflies again with this card!
It is all fairly neutral, the only real colour being the background peach/pink paper, everything else is script paper and kraft cardstock.  The flowers are Rose Creations with some Tea Dye distress ink.  
Just by curling the petals you get a much more realistic flower.   
I've varied the sizes so they descend and looped some twine in between.
I think this follows on from my map flowers in that you can pretty much use any patterned papers to create flowers...I'm now looking at the Yellow Pages and wondering.....! 
Have a lovely Sunday and thank you for visiting.
Back tomorrow with news of the Bluewater craft event that I attended yesterday....

This is so pretty Christine. I love the way you have sized the roses. Wonder if white pages might be better cos then you can ink them to match your project?

You do realise that I wont be throwing any thing away in case I can use it for flowers lol
Hope Blue water was fun

Beautiful card Christine, im so into flowers and butterflies. Love the paper you have used for the flowers and yes can see the map connection. As for the yellow pages i have one saved for a while now but not yet got round to doing anything with it. Maybe ill do something today now you've refreshed my memory about it. xx hazel
