Thinking of You

The current challenge at The Male Room is 'Remembrance or Sympathy'.  I made this card with peel-offs (something I haven't used for a while) and snippets of card so I'm off to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Card: Silver mirri
Punch: Woodware Crafty Edger 'Ribbon Cassette'
Other: Magenta Style '3D flower' (name unknown) and Woodware 'Sympathetic Thoughts' silver peel-offs, Diamond Stickles
Snippets: White card

I used the Crafty Edger on a piece of silver mirri, trimmed it to size and attached it to the card front.  I then attached a piece of white card over the silver mirri it so it covered the ribbon holes.  The main flower was attached to the left side of the card  and the sentiment in the lower corner.  I attached the flower layers onto snippets of white card, fussy cut them and attached the layers with Pinflair glue.   To finish, I added Diamond Stickles to the centres of the flowers.
