One of my cousins was recently blessed with a sweet baby girl; this card is for her. In trying to figure out how to use Big Blossom with So Very, the problem that I ran into was where to put the type.
Then it occurred to me that I could stamp the type on the background (wheeled with Hot to Dot), then stamp my flower and align the two layers of type. It looks a bit odd from an angle, but when you look at it squarely, the layers match quite well.
My next problem was where to put a ribbon. The "so very" already created a strong horizontal line, something that I typically use ribbon for. About the only place that I had left was to attach a bit of ribbon to the raised center of the flower. I made my own white brad with a JulieHRR trick--heating the brad with a heat tool while holding it with tweezers, then dipping it into white embossing powder. If the brad is hot enough, the EP should melt right on. If it is not completely melted, just give it one more shot with the heat tool. This is a simple card, but I think she'll like it!
