Tissue paper flower - stamping 411 sketch challenge 153

I watched a You Tube video today on how to make paper tissue flowers.  Here is the site.

The flowers were made by punching 12 layers of tissue paper with the big flower punch, piercing the center and inserting a brad.  Each layer was then crinkled up, rotating each layer ever so slightly.  After crinkling each layer up, each layer was then uncrinkled (probably not a word).  Each flower was spritzed with vanilla smooch.
The leaves were made using the Big Bird punch.
The flowers and leaves were attached to embossed vellum which was matted with bashful blue card stock.
Other materials:
Stamp:  Teeny tiny withes
Paper:  Bashful blue, whisper white (which was embossed with the finial embossing folder and lightly inked with bashful blue ink), vellum, old olive card stock
Other:  Square textile and finial embossing folders, large glue dots, bashful blue satin ribbon, vanilla spritz smooch.

Soft, and pretty, and stunning! Like how you used several different embossing folders together.
