  4. These are so gorgeous, I can almost smell their sweet perfume! It's incredible!

  5. What do you mean when you say you ball the vase to make it 3D? Do you wad it up into a ball or do you use your tools from the flower shaping kit? Thank you in advance! this is a beautiful card!

    1. I use the tools to ball it up...thus rounding the swirls and making it into a ball shape.I know it's a term I use, when I say balling I mean rounding. Yes I use the flower shaping ki for this, I call the tools. balling tools as they have balls on them. I think, it is what you get used to Have a great day
