Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #75 - Pleated Flower

Happy Wednesday Everyone,
Today's post is for the Inkspirations Sketch Challenge this week.  I decided to try to make a flower with a pleated centre.  I have noticed this technique on a few different blogs, but it was mainly used as a background instead of the focal point. I embossed the frame of the flower and the leaves for some texture.  I think I achieved what I was aiming for, let me know if you like it!!
