On the long side, score the night of navy card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a landscape card.

Round two opposite corners of the designer series paper and adhere to the card front.

Use the label pick a punch to punch both ends of the strip of navy or if you don't have that, you can just flag both ends with your paper snips.

Stamp the large flower onto the 2" circle using bermuda bay ink - I stamped off once and then stamped it to make it lighter.  Stamp two smaller ones on some scrap basic white card.

Punch out some flowers with the small blooms punch and shape them slightly, then stamp the stamens in the centre of each of these as well as the larger stamped flowers. Stamp the sentiment over the flower on the 2" circle using night of navy ink. Punch out lots of small flowers with the confetti flowers border punch.

Die cut two sets of leaves and the two stamped flowers.

I've arranged the leaves so that the stems lie along the navy strip and added the sentiment over the top on dimensionals to keep them in place.  Add a little bit of glue to the ends of the leaves to keep them in place.  Arrange the larger flowers over the top of the leaves and around the circle then add the tiny flowers all around, as many or as few as you like.  Add rhinestones to the centre of each of the small flowers.

Stamp a sentiment on the remaining white layer and adhere to the inside of the card.

A pretty thank you card, I love how it turned out, why don't you give it a try?
