JAI Fussy cutting

The Just add Ink challenge for this week is fussy cutting. So what is that? It's cutting out intricate pieces of paper. Adding to the challenge my friend Kim makes wonderful cards so I to come up with something special for her birthday. Quite a while ago I recalled seeing flowers on a dressing table card so I thought I would have a go. This is what I came up with.

Making the mirror image took me a while to figure out it's not often we want to show the back of flowers. I also had to think about where the light was theoretically coming from. I also made the mirror image a lighter shade.
