Hi Marion,
here is a link for making those crochet flowers you asked me about.
http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2009/05/embellish-it-senior-challenge.html
I made mine with a very small hook and embroidery floss, but you can use crochet cotton too. I hope you let me know how they turned out. Gorgeous card by the way!
hugs Marilyn Webb
