Flourishes and Flowers

Lots going on with this design.
Begin with a white card base that has the corners rounded.
The next step is to take piece of white card stock
and punch one side with a decorative border punch.
Now dry emboss that piece in Cuttlebugs Dotted Swiss 
folder.  Trim it down in size to about 4 x 5.25 inches or slightly
less and round the corners.  Attach to a piece of light pink
card stock, trim to a narrow border with Perfect Layers ruler
and again round the edges.  
Attach and center on the white card base.

The phrase is computer generated in Paint Shop Pro X.
It has been attached to that lovely light pink card stock
and trimmed with a scallop decorative scissors.
This mirrors the scallops on the punched edge.

The green leaf/flourish die cut is from BossKut.
I used several of the die cuts and took them apart 
to get the look that I wanted.  Seams where 
they were joined are covered with flowers.

The flowers were punched with various
Punch Bunch punches.  Very tiny flowers
were also placed on the phrase which pulls
the whole design together.
Some of the larger flowers not only have a
sunburst center, but were also accented
with clear glitter glue as well.
