many thanks PT ink Blog Hop

I started with my 1" punch and two pattern papers from Papertrey ink guidelines
14 of each color and glued them back to back and inked the edges
with French Lilac

next I rolled the edges in a little on each side
then folded in thirds
 glued all petals down to a larger base circle
I free hand cut the stems and leaves
Finished the flower with a PT ink Vintage buttons
Spring Mix
placed on A2 Card PT ink kraft card stock
first mat plum pudding
second mat from Father knows best
third mat from Everyday Blessings
I machine stitched all the layers
last a banner cut from Lemon Tart
stamped with French Lilac and many thanks
from Fillable frames #1 stamp set
tiny bow rustic jute button twine
