I've used Technique Tuesday's Ranunculus stamp but as soon as I stamped the flower I knew there was two many layers to 3d so I settled in just cutting out each bloom. I also cut out the stems they were a bit more difficult and I used a craft knife.

I recently treated myself to some embossing folders and this one is called Weathered from Taylored Expression, I thought it would give a bit of interest to what would be a nearly white card. I blended some ink in the corner for where my I planned to stick my flower.

My card was looking Ok I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle although you can't really seem the faux stitching but I know I can add a sliver of coloured card and it will be a perfect fit for the Avery Elle Sweet Scallops. I planned to used enamel dots but the placement was down to the fact that after the card was nearly finished it acquired a couple of dirty marks.

To finish I used the Simon Says Stamp Sending die and their Sketched Ranuncus has arrived in my craftroom and I used a couple of the sentiments to finish of my sentiment.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
