Thinking of You with Lilies - Challenge 104

Another Sympathy card, another card with flowers.  I'm really on a roll!!  I just love making flowers using the Stampin Up Punches - as if you couldn't tell.
Here's my card for today - for challenge 104- Sympathy cards
Stamp: Teeny Tiny wishes
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight marker

Accessories: 5-petal punch, Scallop Trim border punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Pearls, Linen Thread, 2 Step Bird Punch, 1/8 Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon

Making the Lily:
1.  Punch out one 5 petal punch for each Lily
2.  Cut out one of the petals - you have 4 remaining petals
3.  Punch a hole in the middle with a small hole punch
4.  Sponge edges of petals with Basic Gray
5.   Use Daffodil Delight to colour around punched hole - this is center of flower
6.  Bring 2 petals together and over lap.  Adhere with a glue dot. Curls petals outward with a bone folder or dowel.
7.  Cut a 4" piece of linen thread and fold in four.  Insert one end through hole in centre of flower and adhere on the bottom with a glue dot.  Trim as desired.
