I decided to create a card. I stamped the sentiment as well as the layered flowers.

IMG_3161I added a whole lot of bling and flowers…and flowers with bling on top , and paper patterns from KI Memories. The beautiful ribbon is Capri Blue Diamond Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 IMG_3163I created the blue flowers by stamping the flower image on light blue cardstock….trimming them out, cutting between the leaves and layering them. Last but not least I topped them off with a large pearly center.
