Happy Easter - Technostamper #356

Fortunately I'm in the flower making mood, so when I saw the challenge sketch with Technostamper I immediately thought of a flower as the focal image.  And, since I needed Easter cards, I made this an Easter card.

The DSP is the Irrestibly Yours (SAB) floral background sponged with Wild Wisabi and cut into 1 1/4" strips.
Two flowers were made using punches; the leaves with the Bouquet die.
 Here's a close up of one of the flower.  After finishing them they were spritzed with a hand made glitter solution.

Here's how I made the flower:
Punch the following:
.2 of Pansy Petal flowers in Perfect Plum
.2 of 1 1/4" scallop circle in Perfect Plum
.2 of 7/8" scallop circle in Daffodil Delight
. a strip of Tangerine Tango cut with the Fringe Scissors and rolled up.
.Die cut 2 leaves for each flower  in Wild Wasabi using the Bouquet die.

Sponge the Pansy Petals and the 1 1/4 scallop circles with Elegant Eggplant ink.
Sponge the 7/8" scallop circles with Hello Honey ink.
For each of the Pansy Petal flowers, make a small snip between each petal.
For each of the 1 1/4 and 7/8" scallop circles make a smaller snip between every 2nd scallop.
With a skewer or the handle of a small paint brush, curl each petal and the 2 scallops around the skewer.
Adhere the 2 Pansy Petals together alternating the petals; adhere each of the 11/4 scallop circle again alternating petals.  Finally adhere the Daffodil Delight flowers alternating petal.  Then insert the Tangerine Tango fringe in the middle.

Here are the supplies used to make the card:
