Mojo Monday 206

Hi. Today's card is based on Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 206. I have demonstrated below how I made this card. Most of the supplies used in this card are recycled.

 The background PP is cut out from a magazine. I used Levis price tag for the embelishment. The flower pot image is a stamp from Hobby Ideas.The ink used is also from Hobby Ideas.
The ribbon is actually the extra lining that we get with the readymade gents trouser. (They give it in a small packet with an extra button). The ribbon was placed such that it covered the text on the PP. Also the flower pot was strategically glued on the tag to hide text 'Levis'. The 2 sequins used on both sides of the ribbon are from an old top.
I cut the Levis tag into two parts. I punched out the flowers from the 2nd part of the tag. 
 Here's how you can make the flower. Punch out the flower in 3 different sizes.
 Ink the edges of the flowers to give a shaded look. I have used brown ink from Hobby Ideas. Emboss the biggest petal from the reverse side.
 It should look like this when turned upside down.
 Now emboss it from the center from this side.
 Emboss the 2nd petal in the same manner.
 Emboss the smalled petal from one side only; the side which will be upwards.
 Use a single punch to make the center of the flower in brown color. Emboss it too.
 Layer the petals as shown and glue. You can vary the flower by adding just 2 petals, instead of 3.
