MIM - Creating Flowers w/ Leaf Dies

Hello, everyone!!!

I had a chance to make a card for PTI's MIM challenge this week.  The challenge was to create flowers with leaf dies or any other dies that you wouldn't usually use for flowers.  I chose to use the Filigree Border die........but, I ended up with a tree instead of flowers.......lol


I die cut several strips of the Filigree Border die out of patterned paper and then I cut apart each little section.  I used a tiny circle as a base (like the video) and then pieced them together.  Not sure if you can see it but the 2 bottom bunches use 4 sections each and the top "flower" only uses 3.




Here's the video that I mentioned above!
