Flower Soft tree

Today over on the Flourishes Newsletter, the lovely and talented Cindy is giving us all a tutorial on Flower Soft, so go over and check it out!  For my card I used the Swings stamp set from Flourishes, stamped the image in Memento ink, colored in the branches with a Copic marker, layed down my coat of glue and then sprinkled some green Flower Soft over the glue.  While the glue was still wet, I grabbed some Kaiser Red Pearls and pushed them into the Flower Soft, to kind of make it appear that apples were in the tree.

This card has a very different effect- Amazing! The ribbon used is beautiful. I Love the button on the bow with the square knoT tie of twine. That and the stitching effect gives it such a handcrafted care appeal!!
