Another Pick a Petal card

The more I use the Pick a Petal stamp set the more I like it (and the easier it is to use). I've been working on stamping the petals of the flower all together and then cutting the flower out in one piece. The easiest way I have found to do this is to stamp the first petal and then stamp the petal immediately opposite it: creating a figure eight. After that I just align my other four petals against each side of the figure eight. Easy peasy!

The rest of the directions: Stamp petal from Pick A Petal on Pretty in Pink cardstock with VersaMark six times following order described above. Coat with Winter White embossing powder and heat with heat gun. Cut the flower out and sponge edges and center with Purely Pomegranate ink. Stamp flower center on Mellow Moss cardstock with Mellow Moss Classic ink. Punch the center out using a 1" circle punch and then affix to the Pretty in Pink flower with Stampin' dimensionals. Stamp sentiment from So Many Sayings on Purely Pomegranate cardstock. Add a strip of Wild Wasabi double-stitched ribbon and mat on Basic Black cardstock. Adhere the Basic Black piece to a River Rock card base and finish off by adhering the Pretty in Pink flower atop.
