Beautiful Blooms

This is another card that started out as testing some stamps, I love the leaves in the Beautiful Blooms set by PTI, I also like the fact that they come with a few different overlay stamps that can also be used on their own too.
I started by stamping the leaves in different direction from each of the corners of the card then used the dotted overlay stamp in a darker shade of the green to highlight the leaves. I then started adding the blooms by stamping the solid shape in lemon chalk ink then added the ouline blooms in a perlescent orange shade.

I made a focal point by stamping the largest of the blooms on a seperate piece of white card stock and added the individual leaves around it, I then added glossy accents to the bloom and matted and layered onto white and matching green card tying a lemon grosgrain ribbon between the layers.
