Well I'm back again, must be all that hanging onto the ladder gives me time to think. I had a lightbulb moment with this one.
Hammered white A6 card. Flowerpot is a punch, stem is a piece of straight ridged card and then I cut a circle with a nestie (just the right size) mounted them on foam pads and layered up the tiny flowers also a punch. Added a few tiny white gems for a little sparkle. Hey presto a "Topiary Tree"
Thank you also for the lovely comments of my first effort. Much appreciated.
