Good Morning Magnolia,Here's a Card, Friendship or Get Well Card, Technique Card

I thought this was an interesting technique, though I may have overthought it.  I'm not sure if my eye is following the image correctly.  You can see the original card here.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

I cut a 4" x 4-7/8" piece of Whisper White that I stamped the image on.  The image if from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set.  I stamped it using black Memento ink.  I colored the flower in using the Highland Heather light and dark Blends.  The center of the flower was colored in using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  The leaves were colored in using both the light and dark Granny Apple Green Blends.  And the stem was colored in using the light Soft Suede Blends.

I measured 3/4" down on the left side and 2-1/4" down on the right side.  I cut the piece at an angle.  I set the pieces on my card base so I could see where I needed to stamp. I lightly drew lines using a pencil and they were later erased (with ease) using a kneadable eraser.  If you don't have one of those, I highly recommend it.  It only removes the graphite and never ruins your paper, no matter how many times you go over it.  Unless you press down SO hard that you are trying to ruin the paper!  

The words are from the "Here's a Card" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I did set up my card base in my Stamparatus so I could get the words lined up nicely.  

Now here's the problem I'm seeing.  The flower looks stretched out.  When you look at the original card, where the words are placed, the flower part is missing.  So do you stamp the whole flower like I did and cut or do you use a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of card stock, stamp the flower and cut away part of the flower?  If you try this technique, let me know which way you liked better.

Thank you for stopping by today,
