The flower is cut from a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper and layered onto a coordinating scallop (Nestie). I added an embossed layer (SU folder) on the artichoke card front along with two red strips and some large red rickrack, some green brads and stamped oval greeting.
Thrifty Tip: The brads were not quite the right colour so I used a Sharpie marker to change them up. I buy white brads for using in this manner!! Have previously found them at Hobby Lobby when I am in the States.
A few more projects to go today!! I am on a roll!!
