Super card! I love how you recycled the paper pattern, and your flower is fab!

Hi Patti, Thanks for your sweet comments. My flowers are just rolled roses. You draw a spiral onto paper/card, cut it out and just roll them around. There will be tutorials for them on YouTube. Hope this helps - Sasha x
