Silhouette Challenge 'Use A File In A Completely Different Way' Challenge

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.
This month is  (Use a file in a completely different way than it was intended).

Do you ever look at a design you have brought and think 'I'm sure I could make something else with it' well that is exactly what we want you to do this month. 

I started with this cut file shown below and then ungrouped them and remove all except for the long narrow ornament on the right. I then rotated several copies of this and then simply arranged them to get my flower shape. I used the whole in the middle as a guide to line them up and then selected all and welded. A flower was made, I copied this several times and adjusted the size to get my layers.

Here is my card I made with that flower:-
6" Square Scalloped Card Blank - Natalie & Amy's
Card Stock - Bazzill
Die Cut - 
Inks - Ranger Distress Ink
Button & Gem - Stast
Twine - Echo Park

Now onto the Challenge Info.

Kim you sure had on your creativity hat when you took the ornament file and turned it into a flower. I love the colors of the flower and the texture on the light petals. Adding the Gem was a perfect touch. I love it.
Have a creative day.
