Friday Challenge 50 - Wildflowers not Weeds!

This Friday's Challenge at Embellish-Online.com is mine.
The Challenge: Wildflowers, Not Weeds! Let's look at flowers and not the weeds. This week make a flower the FOCUS of your card, layout or project.

I used Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird line for these cards. This paper is double-sided. The tiny floral pice with the circle cut out of the middle (above) is actually a scrap from the 4U card I posted Monday, it was still on my desk, so I flipped it over and used it to frame my tea bag *flower!* I layered the medallion on SU!'s So Saffron cardstock and trimmed it with a tiny scalloped scissors.

Blue Bayou cardstock is by SU!, as is the photo corner punch. I also used Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the punched corner pieces. Brad is by Basic Grey.
This medallion uses the same basic kite fold as the previous card....but for this one I just alternated using them face down and face up. I love the way the same pieces can be arranged to look SO different! This piece has some dimension that is fun too.
