Less is More week 222


I have chosen the pinkish shade and the lime green, although it does look a tad purple here 
I have used a ready made circle card, can't remember the make.
Delicate Mum die - Poppystamps
Craft Creations shimmer paper bought from Sam Taylors, I actually can't believer this is making a come back as it was around years ago.

Here is the card when photographed from a different angle.

I cut the circle from a piece of scrap white card the cut out the flower, I then backed the flower with a snippet of the shimmer paper, coloured the stem, then glued the stem and only the centre of the flower into the circle, then raised the outer leaves of the flower to give a slightly 3 D effect.
You can't really tell here.
I got this idea from the Poppystamps blog but can't find it now to do a link, it is effective in R.L. but no doubt it will flatten once in an envelope.
So as there are a few snippets used here I am also shooting off to the Snippets Playground. week 175
I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot of this die.

Thanks  for looking.
