The World Needs More of You

Hello Peeps!

Today I have a fun card to share that also uses a new stamp set.
This is the Floral Essence Set.
I love this flower and how it looks stamped. The solid image is so pretty!
A little tip I learned when using these solid images, 
If your ink pad is too "juicy" use your bone folder
 (or even a Popsicle stick would work), 
rub it back and forth across the pad to push some of the ink down into the pad.
You can tell it is working as the area you rub across will get lighter in color.
Don't rub too aggressively, just a light touch will do the trick.

Once you do this the image will stamp perfectly.
 I used Lovely Lipstick for my flowers and Daffodil Delight for the centers. 
The leaves are Granny Apple Green and come form the 
Everything is Rosy stamp set.

I used the Nested Stitched Label Dies again,
so love those!

I stamped the sentiment from the Free as a Bird set onto
my stitched label piece with Black Memento ink.
The base of the card is Lovely Lipstick and then a layer of 
white I embossed with the Basket Weave EF.

I added the stitched die piece to the embossed layer with dimensionals.
I then added my white twine up the side and tied a bow.

I then added my flowers around the stitched die piece moving and
arranging til I achieved an arrangement I liked.
I then tucked in the leaves around the flowers.

I finished with a few basic rhinestones.
