My Art - Cardmaking - die cut flower

I added texture to this card with "mesh" which is adhesive drywall tape!! You can usually buy small rolls at a Dollar store if you don't have some hanging around the garage like we have at our house!! The card front was stippled with a stipple stamp (SU) in coordinating ink and the mesh applied. We used pencil crayons on it to add colour and some depth. It worked so well. The flower die cut is embellished with a punch shape and a collaged handmade paper button which I created using a 1 1/4" punch and 1/8" punch. They looked really cool!! I tied some coordinating fibers into the button and just layered all the die cuts to each other and glued the embellishment to the card front with hot glue so it would attach well over the mesh. Brought several greetings so participants could choose what worked best for them.
