Branch With Blue Flowers

I just love this card.  It is so simple and yet
so very elegant.

Begin with a white card base.  
Use a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch piece of white
card stock and the
embossing folder of your choice.
 Attach this to the card base. 

The brown branch has been cut with a Tim Holtz
Sizzix die.  It had a bird on it, which I cut off.

The flowers are from blue vellum and 
punched with Punch Bunch punches.
The flower centers are from a sun burst punch
using white card stock.
Leaves are a pale green and hardly 
noticeable, but do add a lot to the over all look.

The phrase is computer generated in
Paint Shop Pro X using the Mutlu font.
It was then copied to Word where
I could get it to the size that I wanted
and print multiple phrases on the same sheet
of card stock.
It was cut into a rectangle, attached to
the same blue vellum that the flowers
are made of.  I used a Perfect Layers ruler 
to cut the borders all exactly the same.
The finishing touch is a tiny blue flower
with tiny pale green leaves on 
the lower left corner.
