Joanna Sheen's Hothouse flowers

Hi folks!
Here is another card sample I made for Joanna Sheen. This time from the Hothouse flowers rubber stamp collection. These are 'Carnations'. I love how the main image comes with smaller icons or, as in this case, a sentiment. 'Hugs and Kisses' could be used for so many occasions. I've also used the small butterfly stamp from the 'Hydrangea' plate. I cut the butterfly out and added some wire antennae before adding it to the scalloped circle with Pinflair glue gel.
For the card itself I made a 6x6 card blank and added the 3 6x6 panels. Before sticking the cards together I used my Nestabilities to cut the Square apertures. I covered each panel with pretty K&Co papers and inked the edges. I used the Square and Scalloped Nestabilities to create the neat frame around the small flower which I wrapped a tiny piece of sheer ribbon around.
This time the flowers were stamped and embossed and coloured in with Prisma colour pencils, Sansodor and Paper stumps. I did this a few times and decoupaged parts of the image. I used Nestability circle die to cut around the stamped sentiment and layered this onto the scalloped circle. I finished off the sentiment with a little ribbon bow.
I used a length of cream satin ribbon to tie a large bow as the closure of the card. This card was great fun to make. I hope you like it.
More cards soon.
Ciao for now!
