Thank You Card and Tutorial

Today I have a thank you card and a tutorial to share. The card was created using Fancy Pants Summer's End that you can find over at Happy N Scrappin'

Here is the card and the envelope

This is how I created the flower:

1-Cut four (4) 2" scalloped circles. (you can make them larger or smaller and do not have to use a punch, you can use an electronic cutting machine).
2- Fold in half  ( I don't know if you noticed, but I utilized the cover of the paper pad...call it thrifty, frugal, I call it utilizing all the beautiful paper!).
3- Fold in quarters. (repeat with all four).
4- Cut 1" circle from scraps or designer paper. (again if you do not have a punch you can use your electronic cutting machine).
5- Add adhesive to circle and adhere the scalloped circles folded in quarters like so.
6- Here is the "flower"
7- Ink with distress ink if desired.
8-For the center I created a button using my Imaginisce I-top (you can use a different brad or button, or?)
9-For the leaves, I cut 1 1/2" x 1 1/2 squares (if you prefer, you can make them smaller or larger by increasing or decreasing the size of your square of paper)
--  and followed this wonderful step by step tutorial
I finished up my card by adding machine stitching with brown thread (I also forgot to mention that I punched a hole in the middle of the flower to insert the brad.
