Time for this month's sketch challenge & it seems that I'm in flower making mode again! This time I've used Card Candis which make a variety of great flowers as well as being an embellishment. 
1. Punch a  1" circle from card & add a generous dollop of silicone glue. 
2.Take 2 Candis & roll each around a cocktail stick to form a tube. Place them in the centre of the glue pointing upwards.
3. Hold a Candi in one hand & then hold the edge using curved tweezers with the other & twist.
4.Place these under the centre ones to form the first layer of petals. Carry on building up the layers until you're happy with the result.
Simples!! The beauty of this is that using the silicone gives you scope to fiddle with the petals until you're happy with it.  The squares have punched from the Textura cardstock & for the messages I've used the new "Little Messages" from Francoise Read. The "One in a Million" comes from "Always Remember" & the background butterflies from "Happiness Is". To finish add some brown spotty organza ribbon.
