Crocus, a Spring Flower - Challenge 116

This week is going to be wonderful - making Spring Flowers.  It's right up my alley so to speak.  The only ones peeking out of the ground are the tulips it's been so cold.  But the thermometer is climbing and we're getting rain and thunder showers, so that will really help.  It's amazing how fast they sprout up.
Today I made a crocus.  Sometimes they're blooming even before the snow has disappeared.

Stamp: Sincere Salutations
Inks: Perfect Plum, Old Olive
Papers: Card base is So Saffron, followed by a Very Vanilla layer that is sponged with Perfect Plum.  The designer paper is from Botanical Gazette.  The edges of this paper is torn and then inked with Perfect Plumb
Flower: Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Very Vanilla embossed with Square Lattice embossing folder and sponged lightly with Perfect Plumb
Accessories: Two Step Bird Punch, 1/8" Daffodil Delight taffetal ribbon (frayed for center of flower), Photo corner punch, Daffodil Delight pom pom, Scallop Punch, 1/2" circle punch, pearls

Flower: Punch 5 bird wings and sponge edges with ink.  Punch one 1" circle and apply tombo glue liberally on it.  Bend the petals a bit, and apply one by one on the circle.  Bend the last one almost in half & apply to circle.  Before applying the last one, place the frayed ribbon in the middle.
The stem is cut free hand from a piece of Old Olive Card stock, as are the leaves.  They are both sponged with Old Olive ink.
