Long Stemmed Sentiment Card

This is my first time playing in the Play Date Cafe Challenge.  The gorgeous trio of colours are from Play Date Challenge PDCC73.  To make this simple card, I stamped the flower stems on the white cardstock, the flowers on the red cardstock and the vase on the plum cardstock.  I did a little bit of paper piecing and assembled the flower vase.  I added some glitter to the vase, and coloured in the leaves in order to dress up the image.  As for the background, I used Cuttlebug to emboss one of the strips, and used patterned paper for the other strip.  Lastly, I've added three jewels and a ribbon to finish up the card.

Supplies List:
Technique Tuesday Long Stemmed Sentiment Stamps
Technique Tuesday Black Ink
Colorbox Pigment Cat's Eye Queue Fiesta
Making Memories Patterned Paper
Cuttlebug Bloom Dots A2 Embossing Folder
Tombow Dual Brush Pen
