A November Flower

It's Flower of the Month time on the Daring Cardmakers blog and this month it is the Chrysanthemum. I've used this lovely little resin Chrysanthemum. The embellishment is made with a chipboard scallop filled with glass glitter and chipboardheart and buttons that have been Crackle Painted and inked with a gold (heart) and blue (buttons) ink for a subtle sheen. Pearls, seam binding and Cosmo Cricket greeting (currently loving these!) finish this little baby off.
