Floral Fantasy

Just a quickie posting today, as I am in major clear up mode - even the kids are scared that if they sit still for too long they'll be scrubbed or thrown out.
This is one of my favourite flower cards - I made this last night as an order for someone, that seems to fit the Cupcake Craft challenge oooooh sooooo well.
To make it you need 3 super sized daisy punches. Then you pinch each petal of each flower around a pair of tweezers to shape them. The centre of each flower is shaped using an embossing tool in a circular motion in the centre, until the petals start to lift. The flowers are then stacked together, so the petals do not fully overlay each other to form the base of the flower.
The centre is made using a sun punch. You need 7 of these, 1 in green, 3 in bright yellow and 3 in paler yellow. Each ray of the sun is cut into two before each sun is balled in the centre to cup the punches. They are then stacked onto the base flower, green first, then the 3 bright yellow and finally the pale.
Finally the flower has been mounted onto a card, onto some K and Co. paper, which just co-ordinates so well.
I hope you like it, and can understand my vague instructions.
Thanks for looking ;o)
