Instructions so you can create this project too:

 Card size: 5 X 7”

 1. Die Cut the card base using Fancy Classic Oval Frame outer die. Die cut another front from white cardstock (because when making shaped cards you cannot make full shape in order to keep the fold). Cut another front from decorative paper. Cut the next size in with another decorative paper that coordinates. Cut the inner oval from first color decorative paper also cut a piece of foam sheet to fit oval. Glue the first 2 layers onto card.

 2. From Silver cut all the decorative dies in the Fancy Classic Oval Frames set. Glue the thin silver frame where the lavender meets the aqua, glue the next silver die cut centered on front. The oval decorative die goes on the lavender oval, also glue the foam sheet to fit under the paper, now glue the oval stack onto center on card.

 3. Stamp the sentiment using Majestic Violet on white, die cut with a small oval then sponge the edges with LuLu Lavender. Cut a mat from silver 1/8” larger using large oval set then cut a foam sheet to fit. Glue oval sentiment stack together then glue to the center of card.

 4. Stamp smaller Sweet Pea using Majestic Violet, sponge with violet and Magenta Hue. Stamp leaves, sepals and vine using Fern Green, sponge with flower colors and Leaf Green. Shape in the Flower Mold. Shape vines with groove tools or Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit from the back, curl the spindly vines around a stylist or Groove Tool. Flowers are 2-part, glue the 2 parts together in the center and fold upward with fingers, add a dot of Nuvo Crushed Grape to the center of each. Glue the sepals to the bottoms. Make buds using 1 part of flower by rolling petals then gluing sepal onto bottom. Make several spindly vines using green wire wrapped around a stylist or Groove Tool.

 5. Use hot glue to glue arrangement onto card front around sentiment. Add wire vines as desired to finish arrangement. Glitter all the flowers and buds. Mix shimmer and lacquer together then paint onto leaves with an old flat paintbrush. Stipple glue onto card front then add glitter (Try to avoid silver). Your card is finished.

WOW, the pink and blue flowers look INCREDIBLE together. The tiny blue flowers are so adorable, I would love to use them for an Easter decoration. Thank you for doing the blog hops. I REALLY enjoy them, and learn so much about using the HC stamps and dies I already have, and it encourages me to buy more. I am looking forward to the Ontario, CA Stamp & Scrapbook Expo in the fall. I scheduled my trip to England around it :) The one last fall was the best yet! And I bought a lot of your products, as usual...
