This is my interpretation of Flowers... by Debbbbbie, thanks for your inspiration and giving me another way of using this Rose set.
The first thing I did was to stamp En Francis in Elegant Eggplant onto Kraft/Crumb Cake CS using the Stamp-a-ma-jig (so that I could get a larger piece to work with). Then I cut the piece to size and stamped the larger Rose into the top left and bottom right corners of that piece with Elegant Eggplant ink. Next, I matted it onto Elegant Eggplant and cut it to have a 1/16th" border.
Then, I stamped the large Rose, first in Lovely Lilac, then in Elegant Eggplant, next the Bud. With the Bud, I coloured the Stem with an Old Olive marker (but left off the top bits and part of a leaf section). Next, I stamped out two large leaves and one small leaf with Kiwi Kiss and then with Old Olive. I then cut everything out with a pair of very fine tip scissors (taking great care with the stem on the Bud).
To make the card up I gently sponged the edge of the base card with Elegant Eggplant ink. I then stuck the En Francis piece to the right hand side of the card. On the left hand side, I stuck the two large leaves using double sided tape on the wide end and foam tape at the pointy end. I stuck the Rose down with double sided tape on the bottom half and foam tape on the top half. I did the same thing with the small leaf and the Bud and Stem.
