Handmade Flowers

Leave it to ScrapTiffany to challenge me so much that I get a backache... AGAIN!! The challenge? Make handmade flowers. I know, everybody's doing it....... except me.
So, I stole Jennifer Yates' handmade flower idea. I saw it here at Pebbles. She didn't leave any instructions, but I was certain it was so easy to recreate. Yeah right. I couldn't figure out how she got her loops to go in a circle. (Upon a second look at Jennifer's, I see that she attached her loops higher up. I attached mine at the  end with ZOTS.)
I was beginning to like my half flower, especially when I had it positioned to bleed off the page, but I couldn't get the rest of the card's design to work with it. However, peeking out from some ribbon wasn't hideous, so I went with it.

This card was also made for the Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Week Birthday Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Do you make your own flowers? Are you a floral thief like me? Show your stuff over at ScrapTiffany.
