Sew Much Flowery Fun

OK I know I am late to the sewing party and some people are more than "over it" as a trend.  I think that is why I decided to have a go at it.  I don't really worry about trends.  I do like it when I am inspired by what I see and for this card I was firstly inspirated by all the pleated medallions and I thought they would make a good flower.  I used 2 1/2 Spellbinders classic scallops circles to make the flower and folded it along the scallops.  I think the easiest way to fold was line them up and then unfold and fold another fold and after all the pleats are scored actually pleat the piece for dimension.  I wanted a lot of pleats! 

Does the stem look familiar?  It was left over from when I cut decorations for my cousin's baby shower.  I like that I was able to get such a different look from the shower decorations. 

This card was made for our auntie, she is advid knitter but enjoys handmade items and artwork.  Her eldest son is a graphic designer.  So I try not to do something that would be in the realm of graphic design when I make a card for her.
