Designer Tips:
-apply the botanical paper to Be Creative Tape Sheets BEFORE die cutting to help strengthen the delicate paper
-dust the flowers with glitter to cover any open areas of the tape
-customize the button to coordinate better with this paper by sponging with Tattered Rose Distress Ink
-stamp the sentiment repeatedly in a diagonal line through the card
-use Glue Dots to secure the flowers together and then to the card

I hope you enjoy our "Blog Parade" during this holiday weekend!
