A beautiful delicate centre was made with the Tim Holtz  Embossing Folder – Crackle ( SBC | SSS ) and Vellum ( SBC | SSS )

Along the outside of the circle a composition was made with a bunch of die cut flowers using the Sizzix – Thinlits Dies – Bold Flora ( SBC ). This is a bit of an older set but has so many cool elements in it that you can use it over and over.
