Instructions: Stamp and die cut 1 hanging basket. Stamp and die cut 2 of the largest Small Classic Petunia flower, and 2 of the smallest. Stamp and die cut 1 set of large leaves and 1 set of the small leaves. I added colour to the hanging basket and the leaves using Chameleon Pens. I added colour to the separate flowers using ink and daubers. Shape and assemble the flowers and leaves. I added a Dew Drop in the middle of the large flower and beads in the middle of the smaller flowers using liquid adhesive. Let dry.

Die cut the large purple tag. Find and cut out the 2 sentiments “Let's Celebrate” and “My Wish For You” and flag both ends of each. 

Find and cut out both copies of the purple 6x6 card backgrounds. From one I cut out the very middle section without harming the outer frame. As this will also be the background. From the other I cut out the dark section of the card. The card base is 6x12 white cardstock, folded. Adhere the largest layer to the card base. Add the next dark layer using 3D foam squares and white photo corners. Add the third layer again with 3D foam squares. Cut a piece of the purple border strip as wide as the smallest section of the card. Adhere to the left hand side of this section and add liquid pearls along the border.

Add the sentiment and the petunia basket using foam squares. Then add the large flower and leaves. Add a small flower and leaf to the top of the petunia basket.

Take the purple tag and cut a piece of white cardstock that is a little larger than the tag. Distress the edges. Adhere these layers together using 3D foam tape. Punch a hole in the white cardstock layer too. Add the large green silk bow. Add the sentiment using 3D foam squares, and add the small flower and leaves just above it.
