The flower cluster on top are circle dies and scored and folded into this shape. Thought that was pretty clever.

The second two are smaller circle dies with scalloped edges, thought I'd see what those looked like, came out ok.

Thanks for takin' a peek and to all the challengers for lettin' me play along!

I think the circle folding to become a flower is pretty clever, too, and pretty! This is a beautiful color combination, and I love the added touch of the embossing.

Beautiful! I really like the simple 3D idea!! & I think that experimenting with the scalloped circle was a great idea too. Opens a whole new door of ideas ;) I like the way you've layered it all on an embossed background <3 Have a great day and thanks for playing along with PIP Challenges!
