Default How on earth do you make a wire flower??

I just made this card last night:

And I love it! But I didn't do the wire flower - how do you do that? What gauge of wire? I'm very new at using wire.

Thanks!

I *love* your cards! What did you use to watercolor with--ink from an inkpad or a marker?

The way I saw Brent do it at convention (this is the wire flower I'm talking about) is he used the new toolkit and the wire cutters. He took the thinner-gauge wire (26?) and wound from one side to the next so he had about 4 loops on each side. Then wound wire around the center, pulled the loops apart and voila! a flower.

I've made one and it's really simple. I extended the length of the wire a little bit to make a handle and it looked like a princess's wand.
