Crochet Flower




I found these amazingly beautiful hand crocheted flowers made in the 1940's on ebay. The detail on this is unbelievable with multiple layers on each petal. For today's Limited Supply Challenge I used only one sheet of plain cardstock as my card base (Naturals White) with Parisian Breeze designer paper, Top Note die, Pretties Kit pearls, Button Boquet, and Soft Sky stitched ribbon. The blue plaid border around the flowery Top Note is just the negative part of the paper that was cut out (the reverse side of the floral). I never throw anything away!

This is beautiful. I too have quite the stash of things that most people would have easily thrown away.
