Since the paper has kind of a flower theme with green swirly leafy branches and bold circular flowers, I decided to incorporate that into my design for the card. I used some olive craft ink to stamp the sentiment, "grow, " from the kit from Unity Stamp Company, directly on the patterned paper. A lot of Unity's images are large, so they're great for focal images on cards (and for scrapbooking, too). I added a layered pair of the flower embellishments to the letter "o" in the sentiment, along with a flat-backed pearl in the center of the top flower.
I found a coordinating piece of wide olive grosgrain ribbon to tie around the cardfront. I used a matching piece of olive cardstock and the Fiskars Threaded Water punch to create the scalloped strip for the right side of the card. I decided the panel looked a little plain, so I added some zig zag machine stitching. Since my stitching wasn't too straight, I added a trio of flowers to the bottom of the panel to cover it up just a bit. My sewing is like my drawing--no matter what I do, I can't produce a straight line--LOL!
