I like the Stampin’ Up Stippled Blooms, but I like it much better when it is stamped on watercolor paper and the stippled areas are smooth with a brush and some water.  I cut some outlines of the images with my Silhouette Cameo on 90# watercolor paper.  The 140# requires a really deep blade and multiple passes for the cut for a smooth outline, so using a lighter weight paper works better.  I stamped the images with Distress Ink: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry; Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord; Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint.  Since these are rubber stamps I used my E. K. Success Stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up.

00269A rectangle was cut using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Frames from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The back rose, purple flowers, and leaves were attached to the panel using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  One rose was attached with one layer of 3M ½” Foam Tape, and the top rose was adhered with two layers of 3M ½” Foam Tape.

The sentiment is from Penny Black Special Thoughts and was stamped with Hero Hues Black Ink.  The stitched rectangle was applied directly to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  To add a little more interest to the card sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden and Sweetheart Mix were scattered on the front of the card.
