In bloom

Wow all that entry for the last challenge, looks like loads of us like giving texture to our cards. So many talented ladies out there.
Well this week is Janete's turn at TT and she picked "All that blooms". Surely you can do this. We all use flowers on our cards. Pop over TT and check out the DT projects. They just fab.
An empty matchbox
Debbi More Classical Elegance CD
Debbi Moore The Flower Bloom CD
Flower punched
Tim Holtz Distress ink
Black embossing powder
White Acrylic paint
Crafters Companion Spray&Shine
Buttons&Ribbon from stash

First I took apart the top so I can paint it the stamp the script and emboss it. After I used the Black Soot distress ink. Put it back together and punched my flowers. The biggest and middle one are quoter flowers what I had to build up and because they not flat they give dimension to the flower. The top flower just a normal flower punch and to finish the flower of just used a flat bead. I printed of the sentiment from the the CD and varnished it with the spray. With in 2 month I'm on the 2nd can and it's running low. Maybe I use it too much. Well I think bit of shine look good. I have bought these leaf punch(s in 3 size) years ago (3 yrs) and this is probably the 3rd time Ive used it. I just keep forgetting I've got them lol but don't you do the same? Oh I bet you do!
Oh enough of me yapping. I didn't take the inside apart I just covered it with paper then stitched on 2 buttons (1 inside the other out side) and made sure I put the pearl button on before (happened on the 2nd go but did get there in the end lol )
I made a sentiment which sits inside the box perfectly, I've varnished this one too. Punched a hole on the sentiment and just put a small ribbon so it's easy to lift it out. I have made a mistake can you spot it?! I bet everyone screaming how blind I'm using different colour ribbon. I know got to change it but last night when I found this bit of ribbon (my friend was abt to through it away and I just had to save it lol) after matching the colours up and seen it's not good I had no energy to change it but will do it I promise.
