Apple Blossoms Card

As I look at this card I am thinking that maybe I should have just left that rectangle of circles off the white piece.  They were such a bear to get on straight as it was. It took me 3 times to get it right and the third time I ended up using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I don't know why I hate to dig it out but I do.  And once I have it out I use it and the card is just fine.  Who knows what that is all about!!! LOL

SO for my card I used the "Apple Blossoms" set.  I stamped the flower from the set 3 times.  I cut one out so I had a full image.  Then I cut the next layer out and one more layer in.  I set them in place on top of each other using Dimensionals. And in the center of the flower I put a small pearl.  

Next I stamped the words on (which are from the same set!!!) and then I added the ribbon.  I taped the ribbon ends on the back and then tied a small piece of ribbon on the front for the bow.  Now adding the bow should have been done after the card was taped in place on the folded half sheet of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  But did I do it that way?  No of course not, that would have made more sense.  I put all the elements on the card and then tried to use my snail tape.  I ended up using some double-sided adhesive from a tape dispenser.  It was either that or glue.  And then once I got it all together I liked everything but the rectangle of circles.  I may have to try this again to see if I really would like it without the circles!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
