Another Home-made "Prima-like" Flower ;)

Hi Everyone!
I had so much fun making the flower that I posted the other day, that I thought I would try another style.
I absolutely LOVE Prima's Cloissone Bronze flowers and have bought some but just haven't been able to make myself use them because they cost a $buck$ a piece unless you can find them on sale! Uggh!

Sooo..... I broke out with some white cardstock, Glimmer Mist, and some other crafty goodies and made something similar.
What do ya think?

I used a flower punch that I had to start it so the shape is different and I blinged it up with colored pearls and gold embellishment intentionally making it "my own". ;)
Of course, I always team up my flowers with leaves, so I thought I would make one to match it perfectly.
I need to get a finer point glue pen for my gold embossing but I guess what I had worked for now. ;)

These whip up in no time at all and cost very little so I will have no problem actually using them! LOL! :)
Because of the response to the flower I posted the other day, I am going to do a tutorial for that one very very soon.
Would you like a tutorial to see how I did this one as well?

Big hugs!
True :D
