Paper-cut leaf

Hi Friends

I like doing symmetrical designs and recently tried paper cutting.  This is the first ever Paper-cut attempted by me. This is a design I had saved some time back.  I asked permission from the original artist Heather Clements and this is her design. I enjoyed doing it and may do some more in future. I cut the leaf on handmade cream color paper and later mounted on textured green paper, the flowers are punched out from the same cream handmade paper using a medium punch. base is again a handmade paper in a tie-dye kind of design in lovely turquoise!!





I later on stuck a border around and added some pearls. Hope you like it. The paper cut card is very precious to me and is going to my good friend Selma D' Silva in Mumbai who is very fond of paper-cutting. In fact I started looking for paper-cut patterns with her in mind. 



I do hope you like it, its a pleasure to read your encouraging comments. I plan to do another one , I would like to invite your suggestions about the background you may want to see or any other way I can mount this. thank you......
