Not sure about the roses and the yellow one on the right side but the others, use a leaf tip with the thin side turned outwards. Look on popular video site for how to video clips. icon_smile.gif The dark purple flowers with white centers are a drop flower..several tips that you can use for those.

Not a leaf tip... I think you meant to type a rose tip with the thin side turned outwards.

Those are pretty. I saw the purple one on the cover of Woman's Day magazine this month. In the how-to they had rolled out green gumdrops and cut them to look like leaves and placed them on the sides.
