The flowers on this packaging really reminded me of this new hostess set, although I did change the colors.
The stamp was colored with markers and blended to get the two tones on the flowers. I mounted it onto the rose red cs that was punched with Fleur de Lis border punch. The sentiment was stamped, then cut/embossed with the Spellbinders Petite Ovals LG. To get just the small border of the rose red, I carefully trimmed the embossed edge off the vanilla layer and then attached it to the rose red oval. They are both cut with the same die. Get it? It is easier to do than to explain. lol I added a few lovely jewels and mounted it onto the CB swiss dots layer and then onto the rose red card. Oh yeah, the little corner embellishments are the scraps made when I punched the border. May as well use them, eh?
What do you think?

This is a fabulous inspiration card. You did a great job with the two tone flowers, I really like the look you achieved. I hadn't thought of saving my punch outs to add to the card, but I love the way you used it to tie the whole card together. I will have to try it. TFS!
