I've been having a play with the Floral Essence stamp set and am really loving it.  I decided to pair it with some of the new Pressed Petals DSP rather than the Perennial Essence paper.

I started by stamping the flowers on some Very Vanilla using an old SU ink Rose Red.  I'm not sure if the smaller flowers are supposed to be two stamping but that's what I did with them - stamping the larger one in Powder Pink and the smaller one inside in Rose Red.  A touch of Daffodil Delight was used for the centres and I added an old Dazzling Glitter dot in yellow for the centre of the main flower.  

I layered up the DSP and used a framelit from Colourful Seasons to add the detail at the bottom.  The leaves were embossed onto Wild Wasabi with white embossing powder.  All the leaves and flowers have to be fussy cut as there aren't any framelits with this set.  I added a touch of Old Olive twine at the top.  I embossed the beautiful sentiment also in white powder and layered it all onto Wild Wasabi card stock.

I'm adding this into the following challenges:

Global Design Project - #gdp196 - Case the Designer

Inkspirational Challenge - #190 - 3 or 5 of something

Inspired By - Strawberries - I've used similar colours
