AiFactory GD made by me embellishments

This is my last card as Guest Designer on AiFactory - I've really enjoyed the privilege of joining the team for the month of July. Today's challenge 'hand made by me' is to make your own embellishments, so I cut varying sizes of scalloped circles on my cricut, inked them with Victorian velvet DI and scrunched before putting together and popping a button each of them. The main background paper is My Mind's Eye, the paper with roses and the one the flowers were cut from are Pink Petticoat vintage rose and the pink and white flower strip is from Pink Petticoat wild blossoms. The lovely ballerina digi was supplied by AiFactory - I coloured her with copics. 'Home made flowers' is also the challenge today for Cynthia's Rainbow Lady 163.

For this card I used the sketch for Inkspirations 79:
