In essence, this is actually a card front that at the last minute I decided to make a panel. To see how I made the flowers, you can see my video here. Once the flowers were put together I misted them with water and Gold Perfect Pearls and then took the heat gun to them for some added dimension. The edges of all the paper, except the flowers, are trimmed with gold paint. Using Tea Dye Distress Ink and water, I dyed both the Twill and Silk May Arts Ribbon. When I took the heat gun to the Silk ribbon, it scrunched all up and turned into this fabulous old looking ribbon! Can I say that I absolutely LOVE it!

Thanks so much for the excellent instructions. So often I see something I like and no mention is even made of the products used so it is really appreciated when people go to so much trouble to generously share their ideas and show us how to try it for ourselves. Absolutely beautiful card.
