By Any Other Name, Smells So Sweet


I was playing around with imitating a flower embellishment which I had seen on some packaging as I'd been browsing through a craft store. Not sure who's idea I gleaned it from but I think it was Basic Grey.

Problem is, how do I describe it? A rosette flower? A daisy flower? A shredded circle flower? Something else? Not that I've made any attempt to resemble an actual flower (unless you know of a genus which has both blue-green petals and leaves haha).

Well, once I made the embellishment, I decided to create a card in which I could incorporate it. It's a plethora of spellbinders dies, scraps of patterned paper, a hero arts stamp and a Prima pearl accent.

I really like this embellishment you created. That took a lot of snipping from the looks of it. Wonder how it would look if some of the snips were pulled up a bit? Best, Curt

How did I miss this - must have been having a bad week.

Glad I found this as it is lovely - and the green edge on the flower compliments the blue.
