SIL challenge week 6

It's week six over at Scrap-It-Lah's seven-week challenge. Jessy has prepared a easy-to-follow tutorial on how to make a folded flower. This is my card:

Somehow, I folded the flaps on the circles at a smaller angle, so I ended up with more petals. I made another set of folded circles with 6 petals but decided that I liked this one better.

As with most of my creations, I just have to distress everything in sight. I actually started out with white printed paper which I inked both sides. Vintage photo + antique linen on one side, and tattered rose on the other. More grungy =)



I topped the petals with a flower centre which was an extra from the previous challenge. Fits perfectly, yes?

The flower came out to be such a focal piece, that I had to have a plain background for it. It is with much difficulty and restraint that I held myself back from distressing the embossed piece as well!

The colours on the ribbon wrap add a festive air to the card, and helps to make the focal feature pop even more.

Thanks, Jessy, for this simple yet fabulous tutorial...
