I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! We may still have months of winter left, but it's never to early to start dreaming of spring.  So today's card is bright and cheerful, and of course full of flowers.

Stamp the Vintage Floret Bouquet using Memento Ink in black.  Color with Copic markers. Center the largest sized Labels 28 around the colored image and cut.  Leave the image in the die, and add distress ink around the edges, and a little bit over the colored image to tone it down a bit. Cut a scalloped square using the die closest to 6". Cut a contrasting square 4 3/4"  and glue to the center of the larger square. Add machine stitching around the smaller square.  Mount the bouquet using foam dots.  Add stickles to the center of the flowers.  Stamp the sentiment on a purchased small tag, and add a few flourishes from the Vintage Floret Bouquet set.  Ink the edges with Distress Ink. Tie a multi-looped bow, and tuck the tag underneath. Add medium sized pearls in the corners, and one larger pearl to the center of the bow. Mount on a   6" x 6" card base.
