Yellow Floral Swag

Hi friends, Kirstynn here, 
Today I'm sharing a card using one of my favorite floral sets from the most recent release. The Floral Swag Set. I wasn't sure what color I wanted to do these floral elements, but ultimately decided on Peachy Keen, Dan-D-Lion, and Olive Branch. I started by stamping the floral elements in black and then blending the above colors on the floral elements using the stencils. I love using stencils to color images, it makes everything so crisp and beautiful. 
Once I had all the florals inked, I cut them out using the coordinating dies.
 Based on the way the floral pieces curved, I knew I wanted to use a rounded edge. I went with a classic circle and added the frame using the Delicate Stitched Scalloped Circle Dies. I find myself reaching for these and the Delicate Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies often.  
Once I had the circle and the frame cut out, I used the Peachy Keen ink and added in a little highlight in the center of the circle using a very light hand. I then stamped and cut out my sentiment and added it in the center of the circle using some foam tape. 
I wanted some texture in the background so I used the Quilted Plaid Coverplate Die and trimmed it down to 4X 5.25". The next step is just to assemble all the pieces. I tucked some of the floral elements under the circle and some of them lay on top of the circle to add some additional dimension. 
 I'm really happy with how this card turned out, I hope you enjoyed it too. Happy Crafting!!
