I used these from Dies R Us store...

Die-namics Dies Blueprints #13  ...currently this blueprint is not available in the store.
There are other blueprints you can purchase. 
 It makes it so easy to put a card together and you have so many options!
I took the scalloped like circle and cut 8 of them out.  Then I inked each one with the sky craft pad (amuse studio)  Next I wet and crumpled up each one.  Then I uncrumpled them, stacked them and put a whole in the middle.  I fastened them all together with a minibrad.  Starting with the top one...you just pull it up and mush it together...adding one at a time.  It does take some patience and time, but it is so worth the effort! 

I am entering this card into these challenges....
