What is that flower made from?

well, let me tell you how I made this flower.  Oh wait let me show it to you first and see if you can guess before I tell you.
I created this card following a sketch on the Cricut message board this week.  Hard to see in this picture but the dark pink and the white are both pearl papers and the shapes I cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  The happy birthday and flowers are Dazzles.
OK, did you figure it out?  I am sure some of you did because this was not my idea, I learned it from my favorite place for new ideas and tutorials Splitcoast Stampers.  If you have never been there is is well worth checking it out, just click on the resources button at the top of the page for all the different tutorials.  I get a newsletter (email) from them each week and one week it had this tutorial in it to make flowers from used Dryer Sheets, cool huh, it almost looks like lace?  Click HERE to see for yourself, mine is a bit different as I scrunched the "petals" up to give them a more curly look.  I rimmed the edges with Viva Decor Glitter liner.  
Well I hope you enjoyed my card and I would love to hear what you think, leave me a comment :).

Very cool idea! Makes for a really beautiful card! I would have to use the fragrance free dryer sheets though. Hee! Hee! They really mess with my allergies. Hee! Hee!
