Blooming with Kindness tied up with a bow.

OK, time to play!  I have a couple of things going on here.  I saw this bow being made by France Martin.  So cute and I really like it on this card.  I also framed the sentiment instead of the flower.  Here is how I did it:
   
   








I stamped the flower in Crisp Cantaloupe and used the sponge dauber with Strawberry Slush all around the outside edges.  I used the blender pen to remove the ink from the stem and colored it using a Gumball Green marker.  I Then stamped the greeting in Early Espresso.  I used the oval Designer Frame to center the greeting, not the flower.  I used the bottom right one.



Now for the bow:  Next I used two punches.  Extra Large Oval and Scallop Oval and cut one piece 4 x 3/4 and cut points on the end.  I actually used the Hexagon Punch, but you can use a scissors.  I cut both ovals in half.  I used my bone folder to curl the edges on all three cut outs. 


 I used my grid sheet to get the middle and put two dimensionals on both sides.


 First place the large oval with the curve ends touching in the middle over the dimensionals.


 Now put two more dimensionals on the middle of your bow.


 Add the scallop oval with the curve end touching in the middle.


 I now used my Boho Blossoms Punch for the middle of the bow.  Two of these I punched in Very Vanilla and one in DSP.  The vanilla I sponged the edges in Gumball Green.  I layered them in the middle of my bow with glue dots and added a pearl.


 I stamped the inside with the same flower and colors.  The card stock is Strawberry slush 41/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  The next layer is Very Vanilla measuring 4 x 5 1/4.  The next layer is Crisp Cantaloupe and it was run through the Big Shot with the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog.  It measured 3 3/4 x 5.

Well that is it everyone.  What do you think?
