I was so excited to use my new Sizzix Framelit Embossing folder, it really creates a beautiful pattern on the paper. I paired the frame with Memory Box Fabulous Phlox , Norland Flower, and several Fiskars and E.K. Success flowers and tucked Martha Stewart green Fern and Branch leaves under them. Then using the Purple Stickles I dotted the center of each flower and added Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer to create a dew look. To balance the card I added a Cheery Lynn Lace Corners Deco F to each corner and matted under the white cardstock with a nice purple cardstock.
To create the Center Ring use both the Spellbinders Standard Circles so you get a nice ring shape, add mounting tape under ring and center it on the card. It really makes the card pop when completed.

That is a pretty EF isn't it? The purple violets have started blooming in the grass in the park finally. Your beautiful purple flowers look wonderful blooming on this card. I love the way you added dimension with the raised ring for your flowers to nestle into. Beautiful card!
