Make it Monday Linky party

The credit for this card goes to my blogland buddies (Loraine in particular who gave me the blog address of the lady who made these flowers, which I have sadly misplaced) and You tube tutorials.  Sorry, Loraine!

You could see one of the tutorials here. Sorry, I am still not good at all this... I'm afraid, still learning...

When you reach this site, go to tutorials on the top right and look for spiral roses.

I have made the yellow flowers by swirling them and ofcourse some trial and error.

The leaves have been cut manually from crepe paper. The green stamp on the background is from Hero Arts. I have coloured the pot ( made from Sizzix mini die cuts) brown with crayons to make it look natural. Ran over the edges of the card with green Versa stamp pad.

Am entering this for Michelle's Make it Monday Linky party.

Pretty card. Like the background stamp. I checked out the flowermaking link. That's one of the ways mum makes her roses.
