Flowers galore!

Here are two cards using the flowers from the Elusive Images Butterfly Collage plates.
The first card uses Artylicious papers to make the flower and the background is made using Glimmer Mists and stamped with the Corner Flourish:
In the centre of the flower I've just blobbed some clear glue and then piled on beads:
This next card uses the K&Co Classic Boxed Papers to make up the background and the flower. I've stamped the edge of one of the collage stamps to get the diamond pattern:The flower centre uses an old button with some wired beads:
Don't forget to watch the show tomorrow!

Oh Wow! These just get better and better. That corner flourish and how you've used it are fantastic.

Thanks for all the inspiration Helen.

Just stunning! An overused word sometimes but in this instance justified

Love the top card - the colours are wonderful. What did you use to make the white flourish stand out so well? Hope you don't mind me asking!

I actually stamped and embossed the flourish with white embossing powder (don't use it often 'cos it smells funny!) - it showed up really well here because the background was quite dark.

These cards are wonderful. I love the way you have used the corner flourish, and the flowers are yummy- I need those stamps!
