TSSC 41 Eastern Blooms Haiku

Whoa! It's already Monday again and time for Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. Today we have another great sketch from Mary Jo (Technostamper) that looks user-friendly and versatile!
So here's the sketch on the left:

I used the Eastern Blooms set and the beautiful Haiku DSP for today's card. The card base is So Saffron with an overlay of the olive chrysanthemums paper with a Tangerine Tango lining. The Eastern Blooms branch is stamped in So Saffron on the same color card stock then overstamped with the Canvas background stamp, also in So Saffron to mute it. This layer was wrapped with a length of olive grosgrain ribbon through a metal hardware buckle.

For the circle element used the large bloom in the set. I stamped it twice in Tangerine Tango on So Saffron card stock then cut them out. I also stamped the small bloom for the center the same way and cut it out. I shaped the petals with the blade of my paper snips and layered the two blossoms with double Dimensionals. A green circle rhinestone brad was added to the center flower which is then placed in the center of the flower. I punched a scallop circle from Old Olive, layered in onto the card and adhered the flower on top of that.The sentiment is from Wonderful Favorites is stamped in Artichoke CRAFT ink and heat embossed in clear ep.

Stamps: Eastern Blooms (#111626, p. 91), Canvas (#104421, p. 35), Wonderful Favorites (#109461, pg. 144)
Inks: Always Artichoke Craft ink; So Saffron, Tangerine Tango Classic Inks
