Using handmade flowers

I've made this card for the Week 40 Polka Doodles Challenge - Handmade Flowers.

This time instead of using the large flowers we are all making at the moment, I thought it would be nice to use small flowers that I used to make a while back before we had the intricate dies we have now.

To make the flowers you will need a medium and small daisy punch. With the medium, punch out two daisies in pink and with the small one punch out two daisies in yellow. Glue the two pink daisies together so that it makes a filled in flower and do the same with the yellow daisy. Next you need to take a pair of tweezers and pinch each petal up with the tweezers pushing down in the middle, do this for all 16 petals and do like wise with the yellow flower which ,when glued to the pink flower will help make the centre. When each one is dry you can ink the edges and add a pearl to finish.

These flowers would also look nice as the centres of some of our larger blooms or great as a more delicate touch.
