Apply the Pale fig to the edges of the band and the shield. Stamp the sentiment on the shield.

To decorate the card: Taking the white card, stamp and die cut x3 flower sprays, 2x flower boarders and 3-4 small flower spray fillers. Give color to the elements by using the zig markers listed. Follow the, how to make the flowers. Once the flowers etc. are made you can decorate the card. First adhere the 1/2 circle to the card front, then the flower sprays with the band. Adhere the shield with the sentiment to the center of the band. Adhere the flower border to the top of the lace circle. Trim and add the 2nd flower border to under the band.
