Variation on the chrysanthemum and leaf card
This is a variation on the chrysanthemum and leaf card I posted earlier in the week. The central flower is layered onto silver mirri paper which shines through where the petals are bent upwards, which gives a nice effect. The base card is a pale pink backed with a blue/mauve insert and the flower is cut from the backing card. The text is backed with silver mirri paper to give a foiled appearance. I was pleased with the finished card, but on reflection it is a little understated and would have had more impact if the backing insert and flower had been cut in a stronger colour.
