Nestabilities Flower - Chrysanthemum

I used a cream base card with a Ripe Advacado ribbon, card and stamped flourishes in the same colour ink, all including the stamps available from Papertrey Ink.
I used the scalloped Circles Nestabilities to create the flower, I'm calling it a Chrysanthemum because that is the blossom I was aiming for.
The Label shapes are also Nestabilies.

Attention to detail...

A closer look at the Chrysanthemum, I also used a leaf punch on green paper then distress it with chalk inks to make them look a little more lifelike.


If you would like to know how to make this leave a comment, if I have enough interest I'll do a tutorial.

I would love to be able to see exactly how this was done! It is absolutely beautiful!

I have a question though..is this one you would just hand deliver as putting into an envelope would pretty much ruin the flower.

Thanks!
