As I was looking through my stamps this morning and I found this one that I hadn't used yet.  I think this flower image is really cute and I wanted to see what I could make with it. 

My flower image was stamped three times.  The first time I inked up the stem/leaf using my certainly celery ink pad and the flower was inked using my pretty in pink ink pad, then I stamped it onto my card stock. 

The second time I stamped the flower image I stamped, just the flower, using pretty in pink ink.  Then I cut it out and I used a SU dimensional to place it over my first stamped flower image.

And the third time I stamped the flower image, I used chocolate chip ink and I stamped just the flower onto a scrap piece of card stock.  Then I only cut out the center of the flower and I placed that on top of (the center) of my popped up flower image.

The rest of my card was quick and easy.  My flower image panel is layered onto a chocolate chip circle layer and a pretty in pink scalloped circle layer.  (I used my circle scissos plus for cutting out the circles and I used my corner rounder punch to create the scallops on my pretty in pink layer. 

Along the bottom of my chocolate chip card stock layer I used my scallop trim border punch.  My pink and brown pattern paper is from SU and my pink ribbon is from Offray.
