With Love

Adding two colors to the flower was easy by stamping it first in Rose Red ink, and then rolling the edges around my Rich Razzleberry ink pad.  Just remember to stamp in the lighter color first.

The card base is Rose Red cardstock, followed by an embossed layer of Crumb Cake.  After I stamped the flower in the two inks, I added a Rose Red flower brad to the center.   I placed a layer of the ribbon around the crumb cake cardstock, and then tied a bow and attached it using glue dots.  When I stamped and punched my sentiment I thought it looked a little plain, so I also ran it through my Big Shot and embossed it.  Dimensionals were used to raise up the flower.
