ATC Inspired by Tim's 2009 Day 12 Tag

This ATC is inspired by the techniques Tim Holtz showed on his 2009 Day 12 Tag (12 Tags of Christmas). I love the grunge paper flowers he shows how to make in this tag!
Cut out leaf shapes and flowers from grunge paper. Made custom pearl sprays with re-inkers and perfect pearls. Not sure what the combo of the purple spray is, as it's left over from a previous project. Used heat tool to speed up the drying. Then colored edges with black Distress Ink.
 Clip between the petals about 1/2". Cut one flower to center between two petal. On second flower, cut out one petal. On third flower, cut out a two petal section. Where the petals are cut to the center glue one petal over the other with Glossy Accents and hold together with a paper clip until they dry. On the single petal, color back with walnut stain Distress Ink, then curl the sides to the center. On the two petal piece,  color back with walnut stain Distress Ink, from the back curl the left petal to the back then...
 flip it over and roll the turned petal part in to the other half, glue with Glossy Accents and hold until dry. Clip the bottom points off the two petal and one petal pieces.
 On the three large flower bits, curl the petals back and cut off the center points. Then glue the 5 parts together as seen in the blue flower.
 For the card, glue on a piece of music sheet. Color the card with antique linen and aged mahogany Distress Inks.
 Stamp script with blue Distress Ink and flourishes with brown Distress Ink.
 Glued flowers to card, added little "pearls" and a word sticker.
 Here's a close up of the grunge paper flowers, it's hard to see the sparkle.
