I ended up using my 3 brads in the flower centers, and my ribbon is in place of my leaves, and I used some twine tied across my vase and it's threaded through my sentiment and then tied with a bow.
My flowers were simply stamped and then punched out. Each flower was stamped twice so that they have another flower underneath- they are two layers and using my bone folder I rolled the flowers outward and the flower layer underneath I rolled under. I wanted to give my flowers some dimension. The centers of my flowers are just some more stamped flowers that I punched out using my smaller circle punches. The green layer is a 3/4" circle punch and then my brads are in the center of those.
And here's a close up photo of the flowers on my card. I wanted to try and show you the different dimension of my flowers. I have one flower placed on my card just using glue dots and the next flower I used dimensionals, but the third (the highest flower) I ended up stacking my dimensionals so that it would raise up more that the others. To stack your dimensionals, simply place a few dimensionals where you would like them to be and peel off the backing. Next, place a few more dimensionals on top of the first ones you placed down and again, peel off the backing.
I'm also entering my card above for the following challenges:
~ Stampin' Up! Only Blog challenge The challenge was to use a favorite item from the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog that will soon be retiring. I love the Mixed Bunch stamp set with the coordination punch! Plus the labels die I used will also be retiring. Hopefully the die will make it into the new catty!
~ My Craft Spot Challenge Which was to 'Make it Pop'. I Really popped up those flowers with my dimensionals! I love dimensionals and I find myself using them all the time.
~ Craft Your Passion We were to use at least one punch or die cut on our projects. I used my Blossom punch to punch out my flowers.
~ Lollipop Crafts This challenge was to create a spring themed card. Well I don't know about you, but nothing screams spring to me like flowers do, right?
~Made Especially for You This challenge was perfect for me since I love to do everything in 3's. We were to create a card with 3 flowers on it.

Wait, don't go yet.....I had so much fun with the Twisted Tuesday challenge that I decided to make a second card! This time I wanted to make a card using the same colors only I didn't want to make a flower card. All I kept thinking was that I wanted to do something with some strawberries and so this is what I came up with.
I punched a white border using my eyelet border punch just below my wild wasabi dsp. I decided to add my three brads just above my wild wasabi dsp. And for my sentiment I stamped it and punched it out using my word window punch. Then I placed my sentiment particially underneath my main image panel. In case you are not able to read my sentiment is reads- 'sweet treats'.
