Kanzashi flower card

I've been wanting to try to make Kanzashi flowers ever since I found a tutorial on Youtube a few months ago. Moxie Fab's Fun with Fabric challenge was just the push I needed to try it. I adapted the video to use fabric instead of paper. Here is my first attempt:

For the background, I did an emboss resist technique. I first stamped the text background from Vintage Backgrounds set. I then white embossed the doily from Nana's Needlework and sponged the panel with a few pink inks. The sentiment is from the Botanicals set.

Here is a close up.

I think I will make more of these flowers. They are so pretty.
