Iris Fold

I love the look of Iris Folding and finally decided to try my hand at it. Here is my first attempt.

The paper I chose to use is digital paper from Fred She Said called Tie Dyed Cherry Blossoms. I printed out 5 colors, which the pattern idicated I needed.
The flower in the center is one of the cherry blossoms that you can purchase as either pre-colored or black and white.
