Congrats to Mary! What a wonderful gallery! I finally chose Fabulous Florets to case. I kept the layout, floral theme and colors but I changed the images, embossed a bg instead of using dp and used different ribbon and embossing folder.
Since I didn't have the dp Mary used, I took a notebook paper image and embossed in both directions for a grid bg. I also embossed the flower and cut it out.
It's funny about Mary's tutorial for adding the brad to the bow. I tried this yesterday (on a different card) before I even saw her version. My bow was made first and the brad added later, but I like the way Mary does her bow.
The stem of the flower is from another set and I used markers direct to the rubber on it and also the sentiment. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for looking! My blog:The Write Stuff. Sorry! I had to delete a bunch of really old posts from my blog & this is one of them.

This is so sweet. I love the big flower. The papers are so pretty and I adore that polka dotted ribbon! I need to be on the hunt for that. Then I like how you used the brad for the center of the flower on the bg paper. I love this card!
