Jar of Roses & Daisies

Today's card again uses the Build a Bouquet stamps from Stampendous.  I started as I've done before, building the bouquet with the stamps on white card stock and then coloring them with watercolor pencils & blending with a water brush.  

This time, when I was done with that step, I ran the whole thing through my Grand Caliber using an M-Bossabilities folder from Spellbinders ("Elite").  I ran a ribbon around the card stock & tied a knot.  I also heat embossed a greeting on a tiny label (die cut using a die from "Lots of Pops" die set from Elizabeth Crafts).  I added the greeting with foam tape - and used foam tape to attach the whole thing to a green mat before adding it to the front of the card.

Cheryl: The embossing adds interesting texture to the flowers and jar! Cool!
