There are SO MANY ways to use this stamp set, but I was in the mood to “Fussy Cut”!!  Fussy Cutting is when you use our FABULOUS Micro-tip Scissors to neatly & quickly cut out these FUN flowers!!
(Yes - the scissors you use DOES matter!! LOL!!)
I chose to use the Wanderful Paper pack from CTMH.  I also pulled in cardstock colors that coordinate with this paper collection. 
I loved the fact that there are SO MANY stamps in this collection!!!  I wanted to use a lot of them, so I decided to incorporate them onto the designer, background paper. 
Do you see the leaves, stamped as part of the background?

I enjoyed pulling in the CHEVRON pattern by using our 5x7 embossing folder…I know I use these folders on so MANY of my projects! LOL!!
After stamping my flowers, & cutting them out, I mounted them on the FLAXEN square.  I used my sponge dauber to sponge the edges in Flaxen ink & used our journaling pen to add some handmade stitches.
