Freshly Made Sketches #40 - Petunia Flowers

I just had to have a go at making these flowers that Darlene Plotinski show cased in a tutorial on her blog.  Darlene calls them petunias, not too sure if they look like petunias but I loved the look of the finished flower.  The petals were made using the Butterfly punch and the stamens were made using bakers twine and glitter.

I made two cards with the flowers, using the colour scheme of Perfect Plum, Sahara Sand, Old Olive and Whisper White.

The first card I have entered into the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches based on the following sketch:




The second card was just for the fun of it.  I wanted to have a go at making the square shape using the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  It looked complicated but was quite easy to do following the tutorial I found.
