Tissue paper flower :)

I was blog-hopping or blurfing earlier and saw a tutorial on how to make flowers using tissue papers :D
They were so beautiful but I forgot to bookmark the page I went to...sigh... thank God I remembered the method (it's quite easy actually).

A friend of mine wanted me to make a card for a special friend of his. He wanted the colours red, white and pink and a flower (ala the purple flower I made some time ago) on the card.

I made this... Hopefully he likes it. I based this card on 2S4Y's sketch #36. I used Text Style over the PP and distressed the sides using chamomile and chai ink. Then I sewed the edges to give it more interest. The 'ribbon' strip was made using Retro set :) I stamped it over white cardstock. Looks like a strip of ribbon, ey? :)

Can't stuff it in an envelope, though. It'll totally ruin the flower... Still thinking of how or what to put the card into.... any suggestions? :)

This is GORGEOUS!! You need to do a tutorial for us! Oh, and you totally need to stop by to play with the Floral Fusion set I won... though they told me it would be 2-6 weeks so I had to have it sent to the States. :-( I have to wait until Jan to play with it! Whah!! Seriously, wouldn't it be fun if we all lived closer??

This is gorgeous!!! That flower turned out awesome!! Now I want to know how! I think I saw this at Nichol Heady's site but not sure. Sure is adorable. I'm guessing you make circles and scrunch it up?

Wow...the flower is awesome! Yes, you should totally post a tutorial here!
That 'ribbon' strip really got me until I read it the 2nd time. Then, only I realized it's a stamped image. How cool!
