Add a flower at Show us your Twinchies

Twinchiers and anyone who pops in

Here I am again trying another twinchie for the Show us your Twinchies Challenge

I made the background from ground up eggshells which is something I love to do. There are lots of different ways to use eggshells for background so do look on the Internet and give it a go. I made the flower from some striped organza and satin ribbon which is quite stiff and just right to gather up. The leaf I made from a bit of green ribbon and that's it really. I would have liked to have made some more but I am really busy at the moment and we have visitors arriving next Friday for the week.
