Recycled wrapping paper flowers

Hi everyone!
I am playing the Paper Players challenge this evening! 
This theme was truly a challenge..I just didn't know where to start!!!

Then, I started clearing up some of the mess in my craft room and almost threw out this gorgeous wrapping paper that a visiting friend had wrapped my daughter's christmas present in!
Suddenly, just like that, it all came together!!!!! Has that ever happened to you???

I chose the medium geranium punch from Punch Bunch and punched out 12 petals, which I then manipulated with my embossing tool. I placed one layer of petals with the gold side up and alternated it with a layer with the red side up. I cut the leaves using my sizzix die. 

The background panel was from my scraps…embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder.
The sentiment is from Kaisercraft, which I stamped with Versafine Crimson Red and gave a gold border with my gold signo pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great evening!
