Flowers for the teacher

I wanted to try out one of the tutorials from Craft Project Central, and I thought these flowers would make a great gift for my son's Grade 1 teacher...

I was out of time to find the fabric covered floral wire, and this flimsy painted stuff was all Walmart had, so I had to braid 2 strands of wire, with a green ribbon to make it stiff enough to hold the flowers, but even though it was a lot more work, and it killed my wrists, it looked SO pretty in the end :)

I also gave her this card, since it matched perfectly, and I hadn't ended up using it for the end of year card for Wyatt's teacher, because I made this journal and this card instead.
