Chrysanthemum Punchie card

Okay, so I'm staying with the flower theme.  This tutorial for this 5 petal flower card I originally saw here  in Sept. 2008, but the link doesn't work any more. 
This flower is made with the 5 petal flower punch.
Isn't it beautiful.  Here's how I did it.
I punched out 6 flowers from So Saffron card stock.  Two of the flowers were sponged with More Mustard ink, and the remaining 4 with Only Orange.  The last 2 flowers were sponged slightly darker so that there would be a gradation of colour from the middle (light) to the outer edge (darker)
All 6 flowers were stacked on top of each other and the paper piercer was used to pierce a hole in the  middle of the flowers.
One of the More Mustard flower were set aside.  The remaining 5 flowers were cut apart - between each petal to the pierced hole in the center.  Keep the different coloured petals in separate piles.
Add a drop of Tombow Adhesive to each cut more mustard petal.  Adhere all five to the uncut More Mustard flower to the back of it, centering the petals.
follow the same process and glue the 10 Only Orange petals on the next layer, centering between petals of previous row.  Finish flower with 1 more row of 10 Only Orange petals (the heavily sponged flowers).
