These new Sweet William images are just wonderful! They were made to coordinate with the Spellbinders Blossom 3. I stamped all the sizes on gold and purple tissue papers and also on some wide gold tulle ribbon and then die cut them.  After stacking them, I put a gold brad through the center and wrinkled and distressed them within an inch of their lives, lol. I added another piece of the tulle behind the flower then had to get creative with the gold embossed sentiment. This is one BIG flower and I didn’t have much room left on my 5.5 x 4.25 card. I used a border punch across the bottom of the gold layer and backed the flower with a gold embossed fancy label.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
