A little something different with tutorial

Hi guys, I wanted to do something different and recently made this card using some of my favourite things, lace, pearls and pink, lol

I made the flower using tissue paper, here is how I made it,

I cut about seven layers of different size flowers from the same Sissix die

Taking the largest in your hand layer up the same size rotating them so the petals are in a different place from the last, then take the next size up and repeat the process till you you finish with the last smallest, add a brad in the centre to hold them together,

Hold your flower in your hand and squeeze all the petals up and together into the middle,

As you can see you can't then see the brad in the middle,

Gently pull the layers down till you get the desired look,

This is the look i wanted, with still a little depth in the middle, 

Next attach to your chosen card and tweak the petals till happy, I layered mine onto a strip of corrugated card and added a banner using some of my favourite Maja design papers from 
The Marrakesh Trellis is by Dusty Attic and i fixed pearls onto the top and a hint of picket fence crackle paint here and there too,
The flourish is by Cheery Lynn, love this die and they cut so easily,
The lace at the bottom is also from LLC
Pearls stash, metal embellishment Bo Bunny, 

Love doing something different for a change lol

will look if it fits any challenges later ,
