For my card, I used the rosebud, the leaves and the sentiment. I stamped the leaves on the card front behind the oval rosebud image panel. I really like the dimension it added. The images are colored with Copic markers. The edges are sponged with distress inks: Seedless Preserves and Gathered Twigs. I really like the Gathered Twigs for stamping nature images. It's just softer than black. I added the embellishment cut/embossed using Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs and sponging to distress it a bit. I then added the beautiful ribbon (also from MFP) and heated it a bit to get more texture. I hope you like it.
