Garden Impressions DSP

Hello, Crafters.

When I attended Natalie's training on Saturday, she gave my a beautiful
 bouquet of flowers and a congratulations card for my two
 achievements last week.
  I also received a Congratulations card from Paula! She 
had used a design from the Garden Impressions Designer Series
 Paper (DSP) Stack, and very little else; the card was absolutely gorgeous! 

Recently, I have been seeing more and more cards like this, so I decided
 to use the same design for my card today. I cut the design so that 
the cluster of three flowers sat more or less in the centre of my card,
 and approximately a third of the way up. I took another sheet and cut 
out two of the flowers as individuals, and curled the petals upwards.

 I didn't want the cut flowers to disappear on the DSP, so I painted them
 with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. I decided to adhere them using
 Dimensionals, to give some space between the upper and lower
 flowers, and then twisted them to offset the petals of both flowers! 
I think this worked well and I finished the flowers with a Gold 
Faceted Gem in the centre. I adhered the DSP to a Pacific Point
 layer and tied a piece of 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon in Whisper
 White around the bottom half. 
 I find it very easy to tie beautiful bows with this ribbon, so much
 so that I left the bow unusually big for me with long tails that came off
 the bottom of the card by a very long margin! 

I stamped Happy Birthday, from the Botanical Bliss Stamp Set,
  in Pacific Point Ink, and die cut it using  the smallest straight 
cut oval die, and layered it onto a scalloped oval - both dies from 
the Layering Ovals Dies Framelits - in Pacific Point.
 It's very unusual for me to make a simple card,
 but I'm really pleased how this one has turned out!

 I forgot to take a photograph of Paula's card, but I'll remedy that
 tomorrow! That's it from me today! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
