Say it With Flowers–and a Little Tutorial

Good Morning (I think its still morning,  just about), today I have a card for the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge it is a lovely sketch thank you girls,  and at the end of this post I have a little tutorial on how I made the Rose on the card with my new Spellbinders Die.#
Wow just realised looking at this picture just how busy this card is, lots of Dies used on here all available from Dies to Die For and Crafts U Love, The Tag and Border die are Doo Hickeys, I cased the idea for the tag from Maddy (Thanks Hun Mwah xxx), The image of Emma “Plant Pot”, and the Circular Sentiment  are from Lili of the Valley, once again this image was coloured ages ago and although I  wrote down the colours I used on all the stamps I lost the pad I wrote them all on.   The papers are from the Nitwits Possibilities download this is a stunning set full of lilacs and pinks.
I made the large rose with the Spellbinder Rose Creations Dies, more below, the rest of the flowers are by Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts, Seam Binding and Fancy Pins are from the Ribbon Girl.
Here is how I made the Rose
You need to cut 2 of each of the smallest roses from Double sided paper,  spray both sides of each layer with pearl Glimmer Mist, dry with Heat Gun, then use a decorative brad .

Bring the first layer up and over the brad I have added a little dot of glue to temporary keep it in place, then bring each layer up but leaving the bottom layer flat, then add glitter glue (mine hadn’t dried when I took the picture and looks a bit blobby).   I have also used the same die set to make the 2 felt roses, once I had cut the felt layers out I sprayed them with Crafters Companion Spray and Shine to which makes then easier to mould the petals.  The felt is available from The Ribbon Girl.
here is the finished rose in the Floral  arrangement.
