  1.  I print out my digi stamp - I always print out in draft quality at least the day before.
  2. I then colour digi image with chosen copics.  I chose these to match in with my chosen papers.
  3. I then matted my base card with brown pearlescent card
  4. I die cut my cream card using envelope die set and cut two corners from one of the chosen patterned papers, secured them at the back to show through my envelope die cutting and secured that to my card.
  5. I cut out my image, I am lucky enough to have a brother scan n cut and I used the direct cut facility.  I shaped her a little and then placed her on to my card using collall glue.
  6. I secured my buttons with hot glue.
  7. I then cut some strips of ribbon and placed them and the leaves onto the card topped with the flower which was die cut using a mixture of patterned papers and brown card.
