Instructions: The finished size of this card is 5.7" x 5.7" Taking the pearl coated card stock make a tent fold card base. Taking the design paper from the collection cut the paper to measure 5.4" x 5.4" and 4.7" x 4.7". Ink all the edges of the design papers with the gathered twigs ink and inking tool. Wrap the seam binding ribbon around the smaller paper and then adhere both papers to the card base with the 3d double sided foam tape. Make a triple bow from the remaining ribbon. Wet with the water mister then add bundles sage ink to the knot and let the ink spread to the bow ends. Leave to dry. While drying continue making the embellishments.

Stamp, die cut and color the flowers, leaves, doves and dogwood hanging branches. Make an extra dove as the tail is cut away and placed behind the doves so the tail is even fuller. Trim and adhere the hanging branches to the left side under the ribbon band. When the ribbon bow is dry adhere to the ribbon band above the hanging branches. Adhere the doves above the ribbon bow. Adhere the "Wishes" sentiment to the ribbon band to the right of the dove. Adhere the dogwood flowers and leaves across the ribbon bow. To finish the card apply the stickles to the flower petal tips, the flower centers in the flower branches, the flower centers showing in the printed paper and last to the doves swirling feather tails.
