Concertina folded flowers.

Hi crafters,
My second post of the day. I didn't realise I had so much catching up to do.
Click on photo for a closer look.

I just love making these type of flowers, I have made them so many times.
Normally I put a brad in to hide the centre. This time though the middle was a bit to open to hide with a brad, so I made a quilled fringe flower to fill in the centre instead.
Before I started making this flower, I cut the edge of the strip of paper used, with a scalloped pair of decorative edging scissors. This also helps with the spacing when scoring, to get an evenly folded flower.
I just love these colours. I also added a couple of buttons. I used Cuttlebug Swiss dots for the embossing detail.

SO cute! I love these flowers too! I usually hide the center with a big rhinestone, or a button. I have even made some distressed one out of old book pages, and I will hide the center with a metal Tim Holtz flower. I love all of the detail in your card! Deff and inspiration.
