Instructions

BASE CARD and MAT LAYER

Cut a piece of sand card stock measuring 4 1/4" x 11", and score it at 5 1/2", and fold. Using a deckled blade, cut a piece of pink patterned paper measuring 4 1/8" x 5 3/8". Mount a strip of ribbon across the middle of the pink paper, and mount the pink mat on the front of the card.

FLOWERS

Cut/emboss a large plain oval from white card stock. Stamp the bouquet image in black ink in the center of the oval. Stamp the flowers again on another piece of white card stock. Color the images with COPIC markers. I used YG61 adn YG63 on the leaves and stems, and V93 and V99 on the flowers. Cut out the 3 "forward" blossoms from the image that is not stamped on the oval. Enhance the centers of the flowers with a Purple Star Gelly Roll pen.

ASSEMBLY

Cut/emboss a purple lacy oval. Mount it on the front of the card with foam squares. Glue the white oval onto the purple lacy oval. Mount the trimmed flowers onto the matching flowers using foam squares. Finish by gluing a bow at the bottom of the sparkly bouquet.

Thanks for stopping by!
