September Flowers

It's Flower of the Month time at Daring Cardmakers, and the choice for September's flower is either Asters or Morning Glory. I have chosen Asters for my card.

For this card I've used an off-cut of card as my base (great to use those bits up!) and I really like the shape as it's a little different. I've layered these lovely aqua papers up with an embossed a digi cut label, corrugated card oval that I've edged with ruffled seam binding. The Aster is made by using a Doodlebug 'Paper Frill', which is basically a fringed strip of card and rolled into a spiral then flattened out the petals and inked. A brad and some felt flowers finish off the Aster. Lace, aqua satin and palce blue velvet ribbon runs along the top with some cute little buttons and twine.
