art deco flower

Hi all!
This is my creation off the week! I love the clean and simple themes at the minute. I made this using a tutorial given by doing life on folded flowers and loved it so much I had to make one straight away.
The spotted paper is from DCWV and the purple from my stash. I cut a wrought iron circle (spellbinders) in cream and coloured it with a memento dew drop ink.
The sentiment is from a from a magazine freebie set from Docrafts whcih I used a Sheena Douglass embossing powder on. My embossing needs some more work!keep getting extra bits!
The gem in the centre of the flower is from Docrafts and I used a purple gel pen to draw some dots round the edges of the 6x6card.
Hope you like it!
