Simon Says Stamps Bella Bloom  Die
The embossing are Cuttlebug folders  Seeing Spots and Textile
The flowers are from Sizzix, there are a very old die that I have worn out, if they were still available I would have replaced it, meanwhile I can't make my mind up what the alternative is so I am now a resigned to a mixture of use the die  and snipping with scissors!! 

Maya Road Pearl Pins fastened with Net Crinoline and used Ranger Embossing Powder and used to a
Heat Gun with silver for the sentiment and Foam Pads to attach some of the pads together to create tetxure.

You all know me how much I love flowers and making them and I love the tissue with these Simon Says Stamps Bella Bloom  Die  so I have made a small tutorial to how them now.
I used about several (about 8) layers of tissue, spread them and then  scrunched together wish a small brad temporarily.
I added the same with the smaller flower, joined them post together, added some wire and a small bead  to fasten them together.
I used ribbon to create a stem but ended up with the cat thought I had made them of her new toy so I put them in the glass jar!!!
