Colour Create Challenge Two - Peach and Aqua

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is going well and it's time for Colour Create Challenge Two.
Hope you can join in this week, there's some fantastic inspiration from the very talented Design Team and a lovely colour combination of Peach and Aqua with an option of DIY Flowers.

I've made a card with my Crazy Daisy digi-stamp which is marker coloured with added stickles for sparkle. Image is layered over peach card on the Bazzil pre-cut scalloped base and peach die cut swirl. The flowers were punched from a Raspberry Road digital paper print out with two sizes of retro flower punches which I shaped with a ball tool. These have been stickled too with little half pearls for the centres. The boxes and swirls were cut on my lovely friend Sandra's Cricut Expression (thank you Sandra x), scored, folded and stuck together. I've decorated these with more of the cricut swirls and a flower on top of the square box. There are some Martha Stewart Doily punched borders on the crayon style box which I finally managed to get from the lovely Tracey at Dies to Die For, great service, thanks Tracey and I love it! I finished off the decorating with stickles dots and ribbons in peach and aqua. TFL. Chris.

Awesome - each card of yours are such "a work of art" - you are truly amazing! Ok - got a quick question... on your "too cute" retro flowers - what ball tool do you use? Love the 3-D effect that it gives... Thanks always for sharing!
