A quickie...

I started with a standard card base of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" in Soft Sky, then cut out the two other strips of paper (Groovy Guava - 1 3/4 x 5 1/2", Bali Breeze DS 1 1/2 x 5 1/2").

Next, I stamped the flower from Embrace Life, and colored it in using Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate inks. While the flower was drying, I used my Coluzzle to cut out the Basic Gray mat (4th ring), and layered it with another circle (3rd ring) that had been stamped with the tree branch/leaves from the set in Wild Wasabi. I then used my corner rounder to scallop the edge of the Basic Gray layer. Once the flower was dry, I added Dazzling Diamonds to the center.

I then took a piece of Purely Pomegranate ribbon and pulled the white threads so that it would have a gathered look, and then attached it to the strips of paper before adhering the layers to the card base.

Once the layers were attached to the card base, I stamped my sentiment in Basic Gray. To finish off the card, I adhered the scalloped circle to the card, and added the flower with a dimensional.
