Inspired by buttercups!

Here’s a card for my friend Janani that I share an office with at work! She makes work fun. Thank you Janani!

To make the center of the flower I cut a thin strip of paper about 3 inches long, then cut fringe in it, then added a bit of glue from a gluestick and rolled it up. I pressed gently on the top to get it to fan out and then glued it to the flower with regular white glue.

Supplies: Hero Arts Kaleidoscope Wild Daisy (E3717), Square Distressed Background (F3384), Sketch Line Square (F3826), and Handwritten Thank You (C3964). Memories soft green, Versacolor split pea, and marigold, and Ancient Page chocolate. Fabriano notecard.
