Turquoise Flower Card with Clear Embossing

A large flower. No sentiment. I made the flower as follows:
  • Petals - Three 1-3/4" circles punched from Paper Source peacock (turquoise) card stock. The pieces were cut in half and adhered in a fan-like circle. I used my corner rounder punch to round off the tip of each petal.
  • Center - A 3/4" circle of Papertrey Ink lemon zest (light yellow) card stock, edged with Copic marker YR15.
  • Leaves - Three leaves cut freehand from Paper Source jadeite (green) card stock.
For the dots in the flower center, and the veins on the petals and leaves, I used a Versamark marker with clear embossing powder. Beneath the flower, the light yellow layer is Papertrey Ink lemon zest, edged with Copic marker YR15. The yellow-orange 2-1/8" stripe across the middle is Hero Arts poppy card stock, and the base card is white.
