Hero Arts Painted Flower

This is a beautiful flower but rather larger than I thought!
I stamped some red card with Flower Flourishes and Versamark and dried using a heat gun. The flower image was stamped on white card with Picked Raspberry and Aged Mahogany, Forest Moss and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. I sponged the edges with Spun Sugar and mounted the image on embossed red card that had faux photo corners. These were made by making double slits at each corner with a craft knife. The sentiment was stamped on white card with GKD sentiment, sponged with Spun Sugar and cut with a Sizzlits die. The ribbon was added together with some pink gems.
