I think you can tell I love these flowers for the center I’ve been working on some fibers that I hope will work for flower centers it is a mixture of colored beads (mostly browns and blacks) some different shades of Styrofoam died with shades of browns, rust and a couple other colors to give it an earthy texture in hope that it would look like a center of a flower. Even added pencil shavings and saw dust.

For the inside I added some of the dimensional stickers by Roger La Borde butterflies and flowers and the sentiment is from The Angel Company.
