Die Cut Flowers Card, Bloggers Challenge 139

Today is Friday so it's Blogger's Challenge day!  Today's challenge is the sketch seen on the right.  I decided to go with flowers instead of the circle for my card.

This challenge is perfect for using these Pre-Die Cut Flowers (no Big Shot required for these!)  They are perfect when you want really nice and fast flowers!  There are four die cut 12" x 12" sheets of Textured Cardstock in a package, one each of Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue and Real Red, with dozens of flowers on each, and many different sizes and shapes.  The Textured Cardstock has an almost linen-like appearance and is so classy.
The card base is Bashful Blue.  The next layer, Certainly Celery, was dry embossed with the Big Shot and the Eyelet Texturz Plate for some soft and simple  background texture.  Three pieces of the Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in the same colors as the flowers were adhered to the celery before that layer was added to the card base.  The three die cut flowers were assembled, a celery punched out flower was added to the center then a Jumbo White Brad holds it all together.  The petals were shaped with my fingers then the flower was attached to the card with Dimensionals.

I just really felt the need for a greeting so the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Old Olive on white then punched with the Small Oval Punch and layered onto an Old Olive Modern Label punch-out.  This was also adhered with Dimensionals.  Viola!  Done!  Using the Die Cut Flowers made this card   quick and easy!
