Rolled Tissue Paper Flower (Moxie Fab: Tissue Paper Magic Challenge in The Moxie Fab World)

Hello again!  Sorry I've been away.  It seems that when I'm super busy or not feeling well that it's my blog that suffers, and in turn you.  So I apologize.  I will be super busy again for the next week, but plan to be busy blogging again after that.  I do have a card for you today though.

This was my first attempt at making a tissue paper flower.  I tried it in honor of the Tissue Paper Magic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  I will tell you that you need super strong adhesive when attempting to make one of these.  I used Cosmo Cricket's gruber adhesive made for making these kinds of flowers and it was not strong enough, so I had to add extra adhesive.  I'm sure it would be fine for fabric, but the tissue actually gets a little heavy when it's wound like that. 

The cardstock is from A Muse Studio and the stamp is an old one from A Muse Artstamps.  The patterned paper is from the Lemonade paper pad from Basic Grey.  I drew the frame with a black pigment ink pen from Copic.  The pearl is from Making Memories.  The card is super simple and took me no time at all to make, and I'm a person who takes hours to make one card, but I think it came out really nice.  What do you think?  Again, thanks for sticking with me through the lean posting times.  I promise I'll be back very soon. :)  Oh, and Happy belated Mother's Day to all you Moms out there!!  I hope you had a great one!  Happy Crafting!
