Would like to share some tips I used for this one,
that can be used for all sorts of things....
Fussy cutting of Designer Series Paper.....don't be afraid to cut into it, decoupage, or just make nice shapes!
I die-cut a frame, then embossed it, adding interest, and texture.
I die-cut a smaller frame, to use as a stencil, and used a dauber to add ink shading to the centre.
I used the brill stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the flowers around the sentiment,
which I then coloured in with marker pens.
Here's a pic of the tools I used......
The little flower stamp is from the hostess set Pedal Presents.
Sadly my photographic skills do not do justice to the gorgeous Melon Mambo cardstock,
and Beyond the Garden DSP.
Ribbon and gems from Stampin' Up! too.
Fairly neat bow from me for a change!
