Homebaked embellishment...yum

Sadly not as tasty as cake, but nevermind ;)  Here's my card for the Daringcardmakers 'Homebaked' embellishment challenge and Lets Create 'Mums The Word' challenge. More fun with seam binding, this time I gathered it with some needle and thread. The rosette embellishment very easy to make - just cut four A4 strips of paper by 3.5cm width and fold around the punched out circle greeting. The flower is two punched scallop circles scrunched layered up with a circle and die cut organza flower, finished with a mulberry paper cherry blossom.

My recipe -

Basic Grey ribbon doilies
Wild Orchid crafts for pins, seam binding, and blue cherry blossom flower.
Papers from Pinkpetticoat's 'Spooky doodlies' digi kit and greeting from the 'Sweet Sentiments' kit.

And a close up.
