I prepared the background for the flower using the shadow stamp from the Happy Watercolor stamp set. I then stamped the flower with black ink over the top but wasn't satisfied with the look so I stamped the flower bud onto Melon Mambo dp and trimmed it to adhere over the stamped image. The frame around the design was made with a Rubbernecker Freehand stamp.
The stitched piece of Melon Mambo card stock was cut with a new Spellbinders die. I didn't realize that it would cut out the center as well. So I cut a second white piece and used it as an insert in the frame. The frame is slightly smaller than an A2 card base so I added it to a base of white.
