Big Flower from the Pretties Kit

I have been trying to figure out what to do with the big flowers that come in the Pretties Kit. I finally made a card using that flower.

This was a very simple card to make. I used the cuttlebug on the card base (Always Artichoke), then I added a layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock. The next layer is Mellow Moss cardstock with the swirl image from Baroque Motifs stamped on it in Always Artichoke ink. I tied Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon around that and attached it to the card base. I attached the big flower from the Pretties Kit and then attached a Prima flower with one of the half back pearls from the Pretties Kit to the big flower.

You don't see it in the picture, but I later went back and added a Chocolate Chip Rub-on "celebrate" from the Sale-a-brations set under the ribbon as I decided to use this card as an aniversary card.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I wasn't putting sentiments on some of my cards until I decided what occasion I was using the card for. Sometimes the card looks a little plain without a sentiment when I post them, but I guess that is better than having a perfect card with the wrong sentiment that you can't use.
