Blossoms for Easter

Thank you to Stampin' Up! demonstrator Carla Bazhenow for today's inspiration.  What a great idea to use the Blossoms Petal Punch to create this beautiful flower.

I started the card with Old Olive Cardstock, followed by a layer of Old Olive DSP from the Brights Paper Stack.  Next a layer of Pink Pirouette and then a Square Lattice embossed layer of Whisper White.  I punched both the flower petal and leaves from the Blossoms Petal Punch, added some Old Olive 5/8" Satin Ribbon and a Whisper White 5/8" Jumbo Brad.  To the Easter Wishes sentiment, I sponged some Old Olive ink around the edges.  When I placed the flower petals on the card, the first layer was put on using snail adhesive, the top layer was put on with dimensionals.
