What advice would you give someone starting this project? Purchase a good set of long tweezers. I got the set recommended by Jennifer Dontz on her website - I believe they were about $11.00(ish). Well worth it on a project like this!

Absolutely beautiful work!! I've taken classes with Jacqueline and just love her techniques, but you've really applied them masterfully. Love the color scheme of the bright green ribbon against the more pastel flowers. The roses are really great. Did you do all individual petals, or a five-petal cutter, or a combination of both?

Thank you so much! I really appreciate when folks like yourself take the time to take a look and comment on my work! I can't take any credit for the color scheme, etc. . . . Jacqueline's work was inspiration. On the roses, after preparing the center with 1 single petal, I believe I used a 5-petal cutter for the first 2 or 3 rows, then went to single petal cutters. I kinda played it by ear, and depending on how it was shaping up, I made my decision as to what to use next. After I post this comment, I'll take a look at my bookmarks and try and find the rose tutorial I found very helpful.
